Abstract:

In the U.S., individual State Action Plans are being implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming. This paper uses Linear Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regressions to determine the contributing factors of state emissions, using data from 1990-2000 in all fifty states. The results show that over 90 percent of state emissions factors are attributable to fossil fuel consumption variables (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). However, when regressions are run in the absence of the consumption variables, the results show that transportation, population, income and state policies play a role in affecting state emissions levels. Overall, the findings indicate that decision-makers need to adopt policies to control consumption of fossil fuels and implement mass public transit to account for growing commute times that increase greenhouse gas levels.
