In The United States. decreasing the CO2 emissions from coal: 2.2% to
AFTER the jump of 2.7% in 2018, the CO2 emissions related to the energy sector in the United States are expected to decline in 2019 of 2.2%. Good news for the world considering that the Usa are the main polluters, after China, at the global level. The decrease was primarily due to the reduction of emissions from coal consumption, while, on the contrary, it is foreseen an increase of the emissions of CO2 arising from the combustion of natural gas.

Stable, instead, the CO2 emissions from oil. To make the forecasts is the Eia (Energy Information administration), the arm statistical of the u.s. Department of Energy, emphasizing that the emissions of the first quarter of 2019 are in line with those of the first three months of 2018. Generally in the Usa the first three months of the year are the ones where emissions are highest.

The Eia estimates that CO2 emissions from coal will decrease to 169 million tonnes in 2019, with the largest drop from 2015. Expected instead an increase of 53 million tonnes of emissions from natural gas. The two factors are influenced by changes in the mix of electricity generation with gas increases and coal decreases. We must consider that the electricity sector consumes nearly 92% of the coal used in the Usa. Fortunately, the emissions of the gas does not replace coal, being the generation of electricity from natural gas less polluting than coal. Emissions of oil, instead, will remain the same. These in 2018 accounted for nearly half (45%) of CO2 emissions in 2018 in the United States.
