Where can I find information on U.S. energy demand and related greenhouse gas emissions?
The U.S. Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Annual Energy Review 2003 (2004) is a good basic source of information on U.S. energy demand. See especially the chapters on Energy Consumption by Sector and Environmental Indicators. For more detailed data on energy-related emissions, see the EIA's Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States, 2003 [PDF] (published in 2004); or the Environmental Protection Agency's Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990 – 2003 (April 2005).
