Like residential homes, commercial buildings for offices and businesses need gas to heat them, and keep stoves in restaurants going. Those greenhouse gas emissions are included.
Greenhouse gas emissions from combustion engine vehicles (biofuels are excluded). This is the gasoline you put in your car, compressed natural gas for city buses, and the jet fuel for powering flight.
Coal deposits have trapped greenhouse gases, which are released in the process of mining. These are the greenhouse gas emissions from both active mines and abandoned ones.
Lots of agricultural activities create greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock, manure piles, fertilizer, and tilling soil are all included in this category.
Chemical production is one of the most greenhouse gas intensive industries. The emissions from industrial production and use of chemicals are included.
