IEA releases latest statistics on global CO2 emissions
This afternoon the IEA put up an EXCEL file that contains estimates of CO₂emissions from 1971 to 2010 for over 140 countries and regions. This file, which contains all the latest information on the level and growth of CO₂emissions, has been released in the lead-up to the UN climate negotiations in Doha to provide input and support for the UN process.
A pre-release of the EXCEL file can be downloaded at:
The PDF version of the Highlights and the full-scale study will be released on 13 November 2012.
Key findings include:
Global CO2 emissions rose by 4.6% in 2010, after having declined in 2009 due to the impact of the financial crisis, in particular on Western economies.
Emissions in Annex I countries increased by 3.3% in 2010 after falling sharply in 2009, while emissions in non-Annex I countries continued to increase rapidly (5.6%).
Nearly two-thirds of global emissions for 2010 originated from just ten countries, with the shares of China (23.8%) and the United States (17.7%) far surpassing those of all others.
The combined share of electricity and heat generation and transport represented nearly two-thirds of global emissions in 2010.
We hope you will find this information interesting and helpful.
