Some states and regions of United States have seen a bigger change in energy-related carbon dioxide emissions than others, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said June 3 in its column, "Today in Energy." 

"Between 2005 and 2011, all four Census regions—West, South, Midwest, and Northeast—experienced emissions declines, with the Northeast experiencing larger emissions reductions than the other regions," the agency said. "Underlying state-level emissions changes spanned an even wider range, from a 20 percent emissions increase in Nebraska (Midwest) to a 33 percent decrease in Nevada (West). Regional and subregional spreads reflect differences in local energy economics, population distribution, and other factors."
