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/Trends

[ Get Data ]

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 ... View entire text
