Estimates of Annual Fossil-Fuel CO2 Emitted for Each State in the U.S.A. and the District of Columbia for Each Year from 1960 through 2001, CDIAC/TrendsEntry ID: CDIAC_TRENDS_CO2USA
Abstract: These energy consumption data were multiplied by their respective carbon
dioxide emission factors, which are called carbon content coefficients by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These factors quantify the mass of
oxidized carbon per unit of energy released from a fuel. In the U.S.A., they
are typically expressed in units of teragrams of carbon (Tg-C = 1012 grams of
carbon) per ... quadrillion British thermal units (quadrillion Btu = 1015 Btu, or
"quad"), and are highest for coal and lowest for natural gas. Results are
given in teragrams of carbon emitted.
Data are available for over 30 different petroleum products, with the exact
breakdown varying somewhat from year to year. These products have been treated
individually until the final step of the estimation, at which time CO2
emissions were summed and attributed to liquid petroleum products.
