[Greenbuilding] reduced energy use in USA

I just read this from Rob Watson's GreenerBuildings News, reporting from
the Clinton Global Initiative confab:


There are some weakly positive signs on the carbon emissions front that
show U.S. carbon emissions in 2009 down to 1997 levels. Clearly, the
economic downturn contributed to this, but U.S. energy consumption per
capita is lower than it's been since 1970, and the energy and carbon
intensity of the U.S. economy is the lowest it has been since modern
records have been kept.

If this is true, it would seem more than "weakly positive" (at least to
me). Can anyone verify these statements?
