And the winner for greenhouse gas emissions is…,
February 18th, 2011
A new report by the Environmental Integrity projects shows that emissions of carbon dioxide, a known greenhouse gas that is causing climate change, jumped sharply in the U.S. last year.
This report identified New York State as 23rd in the nation, with about a sixth of the emissions compared to … Texas, which topped the list of most-CO2 emitting states by a wide margin.
Guess this proves the old saying that everything is bigger in Texas, where political leaders are vigorously resisting federal efforts to regulate CO2.
