Greenhouse Gas Inventory Data Explorer

The Data Explorer is an interactive tool that provides access to data from the EPA's annual Inventory of the U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks. You can use the tool to create customized graphs, examine trends over time, and download data. You can visit other EPA pages to learn more about EPA's national inventory and how it relates to EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program.

To view a graph, you can either pick from the full list in the Index of Charts or create a graph by choosing options from the five dropdown menus below. Some drop-down menu options are unavailable and may be added in the future as more capabilities are added to the tool. Within each graph, you can click the legend to turn layers on or off, and you can hover your mouse over the display to reveal data.

Infographic shows U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2019: 3% Fluorinated gases, 7% Nitrious oxide (N2O), 10% Methane (CH4), and 80% Carbon dioxide (CO2); Total U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Economic Sector in 2019: 29% Transportation, 25% Electricity Generation, 23% Industry, 10% Agriculture, 7% Commercial, 6% Residential. U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2019 Total U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Economic Sector in 2019 Fluorinated Gases: 3% Nitrous Oxide: 7% Methane: 10% Carbon Dioxide: 80% Transportation: 29% Electricity Generation: 25% Industry: 23% Agriculture: 10% Commercial: 7% Residential: 6% * Percentages may not add to 100% due to independent rounding and the way the inventory quantifies U.S. territories (not shown) as a separate sector.
Note: Values are rounded to the nearest hundredth. Values of 0.00 may represent positive values less than 0.01 MMT CO2 Equivalent.
Note: Emissions subtotal is the sum of each category that has a positive net flux of MMT CO2 equivalent (this includes both subcategory emissions and changes in carbon stocks).
