What household appliance releases the most CO2?

    It’s not the appliance so much as the energy that is powering it.  The appliance that requires the most electricity/uses the most energy is the one that ultimately is responsible for the CO2 emissions but it is the energy source, be it coal or wind, that is making the difference emissions-wise.  The link below lists the wattage of several standard household appliances as well as how to calculate their energy consumption.  The washing machine and dryer and the dishwasher are all pretty energy-intensive.
