Turning the Corner

Has the U.S. turned the corner on CO2 emissions?

Jack at Watchblog highlights new government statistics that show a decrease of 1.9% in CO2 emissions in 2006 from 2005. A Department of Energy report from May, 2007 finds roughly the same conclusion with preliminary data, and offers details.

CO2 use dropped across the board - most steeply in residential use (it was a mild winter), but also in industrial, commercial, and even (by 0.1%) in transportation.
