U.S. greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) haven't been this low since 1994, when Ace of Base and Sheryl Crow were at the top of music charts. The fall of nearly 1 billion a year from its peak in 2007 is largely a result of a major displacement of coal-fired electrical generation with natural gas, which only emits half the GHGs that coal emits per unit of energy.
