Carbon emissions dropping sharply in U.S.

Since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy

More cuts are almost certainly coming due to increased standards for appliances, automobiles, and incentives to develop renewable energy.

Change is possible. In fact, we’re already doing it.
