Natural gas has again emerged as the good guy in the latest inventory of greenhouse gas emissions released by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The report shows that carbon dioxide emissions in the world’s biggest economy declined by 3.3 percent between 2011 and 2012 due largely to “…a decrease in the carbon intensity of fuels consumed to generate electricity due to a decrease in coal consumption, with increased natural gas consumption.”

It also highlights that improved technology has driven a 40 percent reduction in methane emissions from natural gas production between 2006 and 2012. This is despite a 26 percent increase in natural gas production during roughly the same period according to the US Energy Information Service (2007-2012).

The EPA report can be found here.
