CO2 emissions from fossil fuel and industrial purposes in the United States 1970-2019

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel and industrial purposes in the U.S. peaked in 2005 at roughly six billion metric tons. Since then emissions have been dropping and in 2019 the U.S. emitted 5.1 billion metric tons of CO2. The U.S. has contributed the most CO2 emissions worldwide, having emitted roughly 400 billion metric tons of CO2 since the 1700's. This is almost twice the total produced by China over the same period. However, China currently produces roughly twice the annual CO2 emissions as the U.S.
