Abstract:

Energy use is the largest source of greenhouse gases released by human activities. CO2 emissions from energy use - including transportation, electric power, heating and cooking - account for 82 percent of the country's total. In order to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, Americans must change the way they use energy.
