The U.S. Energy Information Administration forecasts that emissions will fall 2 percent in 2020 and 1.5 percent in 2021. With the exception of 2018, when a cold winter prompted more energy consumption, American carbon dioxide emissions have fallen consistently since a small increase recorded in 2014.
