ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study which found that the energy sector is the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Macedonia. It notes that analysis of existing data shows a consistency in greenhouse emissions. It also says that climate changes are one of the main threats to sustainable development and that they are correlated with economic growth and energy consumption.
