Carbon emissions in Texas declined by 2% between 2004 and 2007, according to a recent report by the nonprofit group Environment Texas. The state produces more emissions than any other state. The drop, which was related to a decline of natural gas consumption, was second only to New York state during that time period. Meanwhile, emissions rose by 19% between 1990 and 2007 in the U.S., according to an Environment America analysis, though the report also found that the emissions growth rate has slowed.
