GHG are the primary driver of climate change. They cause health issues, rise indisease-spreading insects, heat waves, droughts, and other extreme weather events.Under President Barack Obama’s Climate Action Plan, EPA is addressing carbonpollution from the power and transportation sectors.

EPA also increased energy efficiency through the Energy Starprogramme that saved Americans more than $26 Billion in utility bills in 2012.According to the report, GHG emissions in 2012 showed a 10 percent drop below2005 levels.
