Global warming will be a great concern for future generations, b...
  • Global Co 2 Emissions From Fossil Fuels

    Overall, emissions of CO 2 increased by 0.3% to 6.8 tons per person in the United States. Emissions of greenhouse gases other than carbon dioxide, which account for 17% of total greenhouse gas emissions, declined by 0.6%. Emissions from the industrial sector declined 1.3% even though the U.S. economy grew 3.9% in 1998.
