"EPA: US Greenhouse Gas Emissions Increased Slightly In 2014"

"American greenhouse gas emissions increased by less than 1 percent in 2014, according to new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data released this week.

In the draft version of the EPA’s annual greenhouse gas report, the agency said emissions in the U.S. increased by 0.9 percent between 2013 and 2014 after a 2.2 percent increase the previous year.

The EPA blamed the increase on higher fossil fuel consumption in the energy and transportation sectors."
