    Greenhouse gas emissions are measured by the pound. When a unit of fossil fuel is used, it releases a certain amount of emissions into the environment. For example, when 1 gallon of gasoline is combusted, it releases 19 pounds of carbon dioxide into the environment. Burning one ton of coal will release about 5,700 pounds of carbon dioxide. So, we measure how the amount of emissions by the amount of the material combusted.
