Wealthiest 10% of U.S. households responsible for 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions: study

  • Americans in the top 10% of earners are responsible for 40% of the country's greenhouse gas emissions, with investments made as part of household incomes linked to the emissions generated by those investments.
  • The study analyzed emissions associated with investments that created income for households, rather than solely looking at emissions produced by households themselves.
  • Higher income households, who receive a significant portion of their income from investments, were found to have emissions associated with their investment income, with the top 1% of earners alone responsible for 15-17% of the nation's emissions.
