Hi, thank you for bringing your question to Google Answers.

This is a pretty wide open question since it certainly has to involve
estimates and whatever it is would probably vary somewhat from year to
year. Given that, the only solid answer I can come up with for recent
production in the U.S. is ammonia.

According to Global Insight

http://www.globalinsight.com/Perspective/PerspectiveDetail1609.htm

U.S. production of anhydrous ammonia is dropping rapidly and was about
13 million tons for the last year that good estimates are available.

Ammonia is used mostly in agriculture ? to produce fertilizer.

Note that the U.S. estimated available Zircon is about 13-million
tons, but that isn?t annual production, it is total reserves.

Google Search String
u.s. production 13 million ton

I hope that is what you were looking for ? there really isn?t much
more to add because I have no clue as to why you are asking.

If it wasn't what you were looking for, please note that it certainly
is A correct answer to your question as posted.

I see this is probably your first question for Google Answers
Researchers, I hope you understand that we are limited somewhat by the
amount of information you supply in your question.

I can tell you the reason for the question, there is a competition on
Red Dragon FM Radio, called the imposable question, the prise fund for
Monday is 6000 for the correct answer.

Thanks royou!

Gee, if Jules89 wins perhaps I'll get a big tip (GRIN) but I don't think they
ever checked back.

Perhaps that is one answser but I provided references which prove
Zircon is also an answer, in fact, there is no possible way to
accurately say what amount of greenhouse gas emissions come from
washing machines - that is a totally bogus and political answer, not a
"real" answer.

Obviously the contest was not intended to do anything other than
promote some political agenda.

BTW, I am very environmentally conscious and strive to operate a zero
carbon footprint ranch so I know bogus science when I see it.
