U.S. greenhouse gases back up after declineGreenhouse gas emissions blamed for climate change rose in 2010, ending a brief downward turn as the country’s economy recovers from recession. In what could be considered a chicken-and-egg dilemma in holding back rising temperatures, the EPA said Americans burned more coal and gas in 2010 partly because an unusually warm summer raised demand for air conditioning
