The Energy Information Administration provides its monthly energy report which details historical and current US energy usage and emissions.
US overall emissions are below the yearly amount in 1993.
Increased use of Natural Gas has cut 50% more emissions since 2005 than wind and solar power combined.
EIA’s National Energy Modeling System projects that U.S. gas generation capacity will increase nearly 45% over the next 30 years.
The U.S. had the highest overall decline in carbon dioxide emissions.
Between 2005 and 2017, the U.S. carbon dioxide emissions fell by 12.4% on an absolute basis and by 19.9% on a per capita basis. Many European countries experienced larger percentage declines of 20% to over 30%. China’s carbon dioxide emissions increased by 50%, and India’s increased by 88%.
The World Bank has 2014 CO2 emissions per capita.
Country Tons CO2 per cap GDP per capita percent of USA
USA 16.5 tons (100% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
Canada 15.1 tons (93% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
Japan 9.5 tons (67% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
Germany 8.9 tons (85% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
China 7.5 tons (24% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
UK 6.5 tons (73% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
Hong Kong 6.5 tons (74% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
Italy 5.3 tons (64% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
France 4.6 tons (72% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
India 1.7 tons (10% GDP PPP per capita of USA)
A US level of per capita income and France level of nuclear energy usage would be half the US emissions level. France is almost half of Germany per capita emission level and 50% less than the UK per capita emission level.
France uses 75-80% nuclear power for electricity.
