More About the US Reduction in Greenhouse Gasses

Several weeks ago I posted, Here,  in response to an LA times story that reported on the reduction in Green House Gasses (GHG) reported by the EPA.  The period being reported on was 2010 – 2011.  They credited Natural gas with the lions share of the success.  I researched this and found that during that period, wind power was a comparable contributor to the displacement of coal.  The Yale Forum on Climate Change in the Media recently produced a much more in-depth  look at this topic, Here,  and did a great job of addressing the details.
