US Energy-Related Emissions Spike in 2018, Per Rhodium Group

Energy-related emissions increased last year at a rate the U.S. hasn’t experienced since 2010, according to an analysis Rhodium Group released Tuesday.

The climb in energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2018 rivaled the 3.6 percent increase in 2010 — a rebound after the Great Recession. According to the research group’s analysis, the 3.4 percent increase in 2018 is the nation’s second-highest emissions increase in two decades.

Last year was also the first time in recent years that any measurable level of emissions increase was recorded.
