North Country 2010 GHG Emissions Understanding C02 Equivalents Because Green House Gases (GHGs) vary in their ability to retain heat, GHG emission inventories and projects are discussed in terms of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e). CO2e expresses any GHG’s global warming potential as a multiple of the potential of carbon dioxide (CO2). As an example, methane has a CO2e of approximately 22, meaning that methane in the atmosphere produces about 22 times as much warming as the same weight of CO2. 44
