  1. Trends in global CO2 and total greenhouse gas emissions: 2017 report

    CO 2 emissions and total global greenhouse gas emissions are reported for 2016. Total global greenhouse gas emissions continued to increase by about 0.5% in 2016, reaching 49.3 gigatonnes in CO...

  2. Global CO2 emissions: annual increase halves in 2008

    The very high oil prices until the summer of 2008 together with a worldwide financial crisis that started to affect activities in society worldwide, in particular in the second half of 2008, have...

  3. Trends in global CO2 emissions: 2016 Report

    In 2015, after three years of slow growth, the growth of global CO 2 emissions from fossil-fuel use and from steel and cement production was brought to a standstill. One of the main causes was...

  4. Trends in global CO2 and total greenhouse gas emissions: Summary of the 2017 report

    CO 2 emissions and total global greenhouse gas emissions are reported for 2016, based on the latest update of the EDGAR v4.3.2 database, using statistics, where available, up to and including...

  5. Trends in global CO2 emissions: 2015 report

    After a decade of annual increases of 4%, on average, and two years (2012 and 2013) of slowing down to about 1%, the growth in global CO 2 emissions almost stalled, increasing by only 0.5% in...

  6. Global CO2 emissions: increase continued in 2007

    In 2007, global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from fossil fuel use and cement production increased by 3.1%, which is less than the 3.5% increase in 2006. The emissions from China, with an...

  7. Trends in global CO2 emissions: 2013 report

    Actual global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) reached a new record of 34.5 billion tonnes in 2012. Yet, the increase in global CO 2 emissions in that year slowed down to 1.1% (or 1.4%, not...

  8. Climate effects of wood used for bioenergy

    Using logged trees as a bioenergy source – replacing fossil fuel – carries the risk of first increasing CO 2 emissions before reducing them. It could in fact take up to 100 years before...

  9. Limited emission reductions from fuel subsidy removal except in energy-exporting regions

    Hopes are high that removing fossil fuel subsidies could help to mitigate climate change by discouraging inefficient energy consumption and levelling the playing field for renewable energy. In...

  10. Greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios for major emitting countries: 2017 update

    This new report by NewClimate Institute, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) provides an overview of projected...
