No matter your perspective on global warming, data confirms immense growth of CO2 emissions during the period from 1753-2004, from 3 million to 4.2 billion metric tons of carbon.

  • China and the United States combined are responsible for almost 40 percent of today's global CO2 emissions.
  • On a per capita basis, US CO2 emissions stabilized at 5 metric tons per person in the early 1980s. In contrast, China's per capita CO2 emissions are relatively low at 1.4 metric tons. Such per capita discrepancies are standard between developed and developing countries and are central to the call globally to ensure climate-friendly economic growth and development.

Scoping Meeting for IPCC Special Report on Impacts of Global Warming

The scoping meeting for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas (GHG) emission pathways is expected to result in a draft scoping paper that: describes the report's objectives; included an annotated outline of the report; and layout out the process and timeline for its preparation. IPCC 44 in October will review the paper and decide on further IPCC work on the report. The report will integrate information and perspectives from all the three IPCC Working Groups.
