Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions

Green Blog

Using data for the annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) (including land use change) for every country in the world in 2000 (see “ List of countries by greenhouse gas emissions per capita ”, Wikipedia) one can determine how many years left at current rates of GHG pollution (in units of CO2-e or CO2-equivalent i.e. taking other GHGs into account) before a given country uses up its “share”. tonnes CO2- per person per year in 2000 = 2.8 years left, based on the 2000 data.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Australia’s Domestic plus exported GHG pollution was 1,077 million tonnes CO2-e in 2000 but under the Australian Labor Government’s dishonest “Carbon Tax-ETS Scheme” this is estimated to increase to 1,799 million tonnes by 2020 (a 1.7-fold increase) and to 4,490 million tonnes CO2-e by 2050 (a 4.2-fold increase). Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming.
