The Decline of Green House Gases by City-Tech blogger Dave

The subject I have chosen to talk about this week is an article I found about how greenhouse gases (GHG) have declined between the years of 2014 to 2015. Federal officials say that GHGs  declined 2.2 percent. The EPA says the decline is due to lower carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. This could be because of a warmer winter that decreased the demand. President Trump will most likely support fossil fuel growth, and he will not pursue the same regulations that President Obama pursued. The United Stated produced 6,586.2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2015.
