    The Departments of Commerce and Ecology evaluated the model and its assumptions, its validity and usefulness to estimate outcomes. Sinceglobal sea level has risen by about 8 inches. In order to apply the rule, Ecology would have to reopen its rule-making process and give affected companies and entities another chance to comment. However, there is a large range of temperature increases under both pathways, and under the lower pathway, a few projections are only slightly warmer than historical records Figure 1.

    Richard DeBolt Chehalis R on March 12, Requires that clean fuels program rules adopted by the department of ecology exclude from credit-generating eligibility any transportation fuels that are wholly or partly derived from palm oil. Unlike in other parts of the United States, Seattle and other urban areas are rarely exposed to very high temperatures. See the Data EPA has developed an interactive tool that provides access to data from the national greenhouse gas inventory. Washington has very clean and competitive electricity; we can use it more wisely through energy efficiency, a fact that emphasizes the need to address transportation emissions.

    Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: — Increasing temperatures raise concerns for sea level rise in coastal areas. These indirect emissions are negligible, accounting for less than 1 percent of the total emissions shown in the graph. Publication Date:. The new legislation means that within six years, PSE needs to be done with delivering Colstrip power to Washington. As sea level has risen along the Washington coastline, the number of tidal flood days has also increased, with the greatest number occurring in — Figure 6.

Sea level rise has caused an increase in tidal floods associated with nuisance-level impacts. The amendment passed by voice vote in the House on March 12, Amendment offered by Rep. Using electric or hybrid automobiles, provided that the energy is generated from lower-carbon or non-fossil fuels.

Sincethe number has been well above the long-term average. Most Read Local Stories. Note: the Data Explorer will be updated with publication of the Inventory in April after completion of public review.

By the Numbers: Reducing Carbon Emissions in Washington State

Precipitation falling as rain instead of snow can have negative impacts on critical industries, such as the timber and agricultural industry, which are also vulnerable to extreme temperatures. This inventory includes only emissions released by the agency and does not include emissions released by the public traveling on the state highway system.

Kadner, K. Farahani, S. Energy Conservation Reducing personal energy use by turning off lights and electronics when not in use reduces electricity demand. The type of fossil fuel used to generate electricity will emit different amounts of CO2.

The Washington State Legislature passed climate change legislation that included mandatory greenhouse gas reporting requirements RCW The targets established by the state legislature via RCW SinceWashington has experienced below average below freezing days and very cold nights, indicative of warming in Projected greenhouse gas emissions for Washington State in 2010 book region.

Future heat waves, particularly an increase in the frequency of hot nights, could stress these communities, which are not well adapted to such events. We will continue to refine these estimates and provide timely, data-driven reports as details emerge, including careful modeling of Energy Transformation Account and Tax Credit impacts.

Although projections of overall annual precipitation are uncertain, summer precipitation is projected to decrease Figure 7. Jim Brunner Seattle Times staff reporters Gov. Morgan Irwin Enumclaw R on March 12, Requires the department of ecology to contract for an independent consultant to complete the annual estimates of the probable costs or cost savings per gallon of gasoline attributable to the clean fuels program.

The inventory follows The Climate Registry's General Reporting Protocol to the extent feasible, and includes greenhouse gas emissions from the ferry system, the highway system traffic servicesagency buildings, and the agency's vehicle fleet.

Directs the Department of Ecology ECY to adopt a rule establishing a Clean Fuels Program CFP to limit the greenhouse gas emissions per unit of transportation fuel energy to 10 percent below levels by and 20 percent below levels by However, there is a large range of temperature increases under both pathways, and under the lower pathway, a few projections are only slightly warmer than historical records Figure 1.Substitute offered in the House on February 25, Directs the Department of Ecology (ECY) to adopt a rule establishing a Clean Fuels Program (CFP) to limit the greenhouse gas emissions per unit of transportation fuel energy to 10 percent below levels by and 20.

Projected changes for – are from global climate models for two possible futures: one in which greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase (higher emissions) and another in which greenhouse gas emissions increase at a slower rate (lower emissions). Temperatures in Washington (orange line) have risen around °F since the beginning.

Inthe Washington State legislature obligated the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The legislature set greenhouse gas reduction targets of levels bya reduction 25% below levels by and a reduction 50% below levels by RCW ().

This annual report provides a comprehensive accounting of total greenhouse gas emissions for all man-made sources in the United States.
