U.S. Predicts Uptick in Greenhouse Gas Emissions


Attachment: Graeber-EIA-GreenhouseGas

November 10, 2022--Researched by Daniel Graeber for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--A slight uptick in estimates for renewable energy on the U.S. grid does not translate to a decline in overall emissions, a new report from the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) finds.

Delegates at the COP27 summit at the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheik are naming and shaming polluters. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres spent the early part of week condemning the so-called "greenwashers" who put forward strong statements on environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals and go after only the easiest emissions to abate.

While certainly not an example of greenwashing, the latest report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), part of the DoE, does little to ease the criticism of the progress made so far in the energy transition, particularly for major economies.
