    FILE - in this June 25, 2012 file photo, a crew works on a drilling rig at a well site for shale based natural gas in Zelienople, Pa. In a surprising turnaround, the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere in the U.S. has fallen dramatically to its lowest level in 20 years, and government officials say the biggest reason is that cheap and plentiful natural gas has led many power plant operators to switch from dirtier-burning coal. Many of the world's leading climate scientists didn't see the drop coming, in large part because it happened as a result of market forces rather than direct government action against carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that traps heat in the atmosphere.

O'Neill said Wednesday, July 11, 2012, he's dropped his appeal of a 45-day suspension stemming from an excess of carbon dioxide in one of his horses in 2010 and will serve the penalty starting Aug. 19. He added that the suspension was reduced to 40 days, and California Horse Racing Board spokesman Mike Marten confirmed it.(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)

    A Mitshubishi Miev drives past a fuel station during an electric car rally from Tallinn to Monte-Carlo in Orgita June 1, 2012. The rally lasts for 10 days, during which electric cars will cross 10 countries and cover a distance of more than 3300 km (2050 miles). On March 3, 2011, Estonia's government sold Mitsubishi Corporation 10 million carbon dioxide credits in exchange for 507 i-MiEV electric cars, which were then provided to municipal social workers.

    The cooling towers and chimneys from a coal-burning power station can be seen behind a man standing next to his car in a newly constructed residential area in Beijing June 1, 2012. China spurred a jump in global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to their highest ever recorded level in 2011, offsetting falls in the United States and Europe, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Thursday.

    In this image released by NOAA, Chris Carparelli, adjusts a glass flask that line the walls of an air sample processing room at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., Wednesday, May 30, 2012. Researchers at the lab measure the levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in air sent in weekly from sites that are part of an international cooperative air sampling network. The world's air has reached what scientists call a troubling new milestone for carbon dioxide, the main global warming pollution. Monitoring stations across the Arctic this spring are measuring more than 400 parts per million of the heat-trapping gas in the atmosphere. The number isn't quite a surprise, because it's been rising at an accelerating pace, having years ago blown by the 350 mark that many scientists say is the highest safe level for carbon dioxide. So far only the Arctic has reached that 400 level, but the rest of the world will soon follow. (AP Photo/NOAA, Will von Dauster)

    This Jan. 25, 2012 photo shows professional skier and Protect Our Winters board member Chris Davenport in Denver. Davenport says skiers and snowboarders are like a tribe of like-minded people vested in protecting the mountain snows that they spend vast amounts of money to play in. "We?ve talked about creating a voice," he said. Over the years, Protect Our Winters has collected and distributed money to other groups working on projects like renewable energy and climate education. Last fall, board members including Olympic snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler took action of their own. They went to Washington on behalf of Protect Our Winters to deliver a letter asking senators to support regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant. Some Republicans including Mitt Romney have proposed stripping carbon dioxide from the list of pollutants included in the Clean Air Act. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)

    An employee of "APB BirdLife Belarus" takes measurements of carbon dioxide gas levels in a marsh near the village of Rozhno, some 120 km (75 miles) east of Minsk, April 12, 2012. The project named "Restoring peatlands and applying concepts for sustainable management in Belarus. A climate change mitigation with economic and biodiversity benefits" has been running in the country since September 2008. The project will rewet over 14,000 hectares of degraded peatland and quantify greenhouse gas emission reductions, participants said. REUTERS/Vasily Fedosenko (BELARUS - Tags: ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY)
