[GreenYes] FW: U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Fossil Fuels Virtually Unchang ed in 2005 as Price Increases Dampen Energy Demand


For those interested in the latest aggregate CO2 emissions data, see below.
There¹s nothing like high energy prices.

> U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Fossil Fuels Virtually Unchanged
> in 2005 as Price Increases Dampen Energy Demand
>
> U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels increased
> by 0.1 percent in 2005, from 5,903 million metric tons of carbon
> dioxide (MMTCO2) in 2004 to 5,909 MMTCO2 in 2005, according to
> preliminary estimates released today by the Energy Information
> Administration (EIA). The 2005 emissions increase was the third
> smallest during the 1990 to 2005 period, exceeding only the
> emissions declines recorded in 1991 and 2001.
>
> While the economy grew by 3.5 percent between 2004 and 2005,
> energy demand fell by 0.5 percent. The inflation-adjusted price
> of motor gasoline rose 19 percent, and the price of residential
> natural gas rose 16 percent. These price increases in oil and
> gas helped contribute to the overall drop in energy demand.
>
> Total U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have grown by
> 18.4 percent between 1990 and 2005. Energy-related carbon dioxide
> emissions account for over 80 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas
> emissions.
>
> At the energy-sector level, preliminary data indicate that:
>
> + Carbon dioxide emissions in the residential sector increased
> by 3.2 percent in 2005, mainly from increases in the residential
> demand for electricity.
>
> + Emissions from the commercial sector increased by 1.9 percent
> in 2005, also due mainly to increased electricity demand.
>
> + Industrial emissions fell by 3.3 percent in 2005 as the U.S.
> economy continued to move away from heavy manufacturing and as
> petroleum and natural gas prices rose.
>
> + Transportation-related carbon dioxide emissions, which account
> for about a third of total carbon dioxide emissions, increased
> by 0.2 percent in 2005. Emissions related to gasoline demand
> decreased by 0.4 percent, emissions related to diesel fuel grew
> by 1.0 percent and jet fuel emissions decreased by 0.5 percent.
>
> U.S. carbon dioxide intensity (energy-related carbon dioxide
> emissions per unit of economic output) fell by 3.3 percent in 2005.
> From 1990 to 2005, the carbon dioxide intensity of the economy fell
> by 24.3 percent. By 2004 (the latest year of data for all
> greenhouse gases), carbon dioxide intensity had fallen by 21.8
> percent and emissions of total greenhouse gases per dollar of GDP
> had fallen by 23.4 percent. The 3.3-percent drop in carbon dioxide
> intensity of the economy in 2005 is greater than the average
> reduction of 1.8 percent per year experienced since 1990.
>
> EIA will continue to refine its estimates of 2005 carbon dioxide
> emissions as more complete energy data become available. A full
> inventory of 2005 emissions of all greenhouse gases will be
> available in November using revised energy data and providing a
> further analysis of trends.

> The preliminary estimates are on EIA's web site at:
