Note(s): 1) Emissions assume complete combustion from energy consumption, excluding gas flaring, coal mining, and cement production. Emissions exclude wood since it is assumed that the carbon released from combustion is reabsorbed in a future carbon cycle. 2) Includes kerosene space heating (1.8 MMT). 3) Excludes electric imports by utilities. 4) Includes residential furnace fans (22.1 MMT). 5) Includes refrigerators (58.4 MMT) and freezers (13.3 MMT). 6) Includes color television (52 MMT). 7) Includes clothes washers (5.0 MMT), natural gas clothes dryers (3.2 MMT), electric clothes dryers (31.0 MMT), and dishwashers (15.6 MMT).
