IEA: Thanks to Natural Gas, U.S. Energy-Related Carbon Emissions Fell 2 Percent in 2015

New preliminary data released this week by the International Energy Agency (IEA) demonstrates how natural gas has enabled the United States to lead the way in reducing global energy-related CO2 emissions, which are the largest source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
