EMISSIONS OF GREENHOUSE GASES IN THE UNITED STATES 1987-1994
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) is required by the Energy Policy Act of 1992 to prepare a report on aggregate U.S. national emissions of greenhouse gases for the period 1987-1992, with annual updates thereafter. This is the third annual update report, covering national emissions over the period 1987-1993, with preliminary estimates of U.S. carbon dioxide and halocarbon emissions for 1994. Chapter 1 of this report briefly recapitulates some background information about global climate change and the greenhouse effect and discusses important recent developments in global climate change activities. Chapters 2 through 6 cover emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, halocarbons, and criteria pollutants, respectively. Chapter 7 describes potential sequestration and emissions of greenhouse gases as a result of land use changes.
