Figure 1. Potential and reasonably achievable emissions reductions per year, for actions by US households

A recent research article points out that, in the United States, the energy used directly by households and personal driving is responsible for around 38% of national carbon dioxide emissions and constitutes the largest sector of emissions – more than the manufacturing, commercial, or transportation sectors and more than the total emissions of any nation other than China.  Wow!  That’s one reason why Clean Energy Durham’s mission is to move America toward cleaner and safer energy by creating organizations of neighbors helping neighbors save energy.  The article has many more interesting points about household energy use.
