The data is originally presented in terms of solid (e.g. coal), liquid (e.g. petroleum), gas (i.e. natural gas) fuels, and separate terms for cement production and gas flaring (i.e. natural gas lost during oil and gas mining). Unlike the year 2000 graph, the gas flaring (the smallest of all categories) was not added to the total for natural gas. Note that the carbon dioxide releases from cement production result from the thermal decomposition of limestone into lime, and so technically are not a fossil fuel source.
