greenhouse gas emissions

World’s largest annual exporters of emissions

Oil Change International just published a new report showing the country breakdown of GHG emissions implied by fossil fuels emissions.

“As the world moves beyond gas, oil, and coal, this will become an increasingly moral issue: comparable to production and export of asbestos when its domestic use has been phased-out.”

Share of favourable views on main energy sources

“Figure (a) map total and per capita household carbon footprint across EU regions. The top decile emits 15% of the total EU emissions equivalent to 815 MtCO2e. In comparison, the bottom decile (i.e. 10% of the population with lowest emissions per capita) make up about 5% of EU emissions with contribution of 5–7 tCO2e/cap. The [...]

EU progress towards 2020 climate and energy targets

A recent report of the European Energy Agency (EEA) monitored the progress of the European Union against its climate and energy targets. It points out that: “Although the EU and its Member States are making good progress towards their short-term goals on climate and energy, efforts will need to be considerably increased to meet the [...]

Comparison of global emission levels resulting from the INDCs in 2025 and 2030 with other trajectories


Comparison of global emission levels resulting from the intended nationally determined contributions in 2025 and 2030 with pre-INDC reference scenarios and 2 °C scenarios. If countries uphold their commitments (as currently stated), growth of greenhouse gas emissions will slow, but not enough to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius.
