US Powerplant Greenhouse Gas Emissions Declined By 4.5 Percent Last Year And 10 Percent Last Two Years

From The Washington Post, "Greenhouse gas emissions from power plants declined from 2011 to 2012, EPA says" by Lenny Bernstein:
Greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and other industrial facilities declined by 4.5 percent from 2011 to 2012 as utilities continued to switch from coal to natural gas to generate electricity and produced slightly less power overall, the Environmental Protection Agency reported Wednesday.

Greenhouse gas emissions from these sources have declined by 10 percent in the two years since the EPA began compiling the data in 2010.
