MMTC = million metric tons of carbon
Tons of carbon can be converted to tons of carbon dioxide by multiplying by 3.667.
Carbon dioxide is a major greenhouse gas emitted from the burning of fossil fuels.
The transportation sector surpassed the industrial sector’s carbon dioxide emissions for the first time in 1998. Historically, the i
