Green Star: CO2 emissions at a 20-year low

Thanks to the production of massive reserves in Texas, Arkansas, and right here in Pennsylvania on the Marcellus Shale, many power plants are shifting from coal to cleaner-burning natural gas. This is a major factor in the lastest report which shows carbon dioxide emissions at a 20-year low.

There are still questions to be resolved regarding the extraction practices being used on these reserves, and the long-term impact of “fracking” on the environment and human health in the vicinities of the shales should not be taken lightly by any means. However, a 20% reduction in the overall carbon dioxide emissions of the US as a whole is a big achievement and a definite step in the right direction.
