Energy use seems to be a major cause in the rise in CO2. Coal is  largely used to help create electricity, which puts out 44% of the  global CO2 (Module Notes 1, Climate Change). In a chart provided by  Bradshaw, we can see that “energy related industrial processes” account  for 64.7% of the GHG emissions, “industry, mining, buildings, and  transport” account for the major portion of the emissions and CO2  accounts for 77% of the GHG emissions (Bradshaw, 2014, p. 15). Human  energy use requires energy from different sources that put out CO2  emissions, such as electricity, cars, building and construction, and  more. When looking at the World GHG Emissions Flow Chart, we  can see that human energy use is the larger portion of GHG emissions and  that the largest portion of total emissions is CO2. Electricity and  heat seems to be the greatest output of GHG emissions in the world and  almost all of it emits CO2 into the air (World). The other factors that  cause GHG emissions seem to provide less of the total emissions. This  involves “land use change, agriculture, and waste” with examples such as  deforestation, landfills, livestock and manure, and more (World).

          The energy activities that seem to be the most responsible  for GHG emissions include road transportation, residential and  commercial buildings, chemicals, cement, and other industry (World). I  believe that these can be reduced dramatically by each person being  conscious of their usage. Transportation is an example of something that  can be reduced. Public transportation can be increased to help decrease  personal vehicle usage, carpooling can be done, and ensuring that  vehicles pass emissions testing in order to reduce the amount of  emissions emitted by each vehicle. Another method of reducing these  numbers is being conscious of the energy that is being used in  residential and commercial buildings such as air and heat and other  electricity that is being used. An example that is often mentioned is  turning off the lights when leaving a room. Though it seems like a small  thing, if everyone does this then it can reduce energy usage. Humans  have become highly dependent on energy and have become extremely  wasteful with energy. The more that we decrease the amount of energy  used, the more that we can decrease GHG emissions.
