Long-term trend in global CO2 emissions; 2011 report
Informe de las estimaciones preliminares preparadas por la PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency con el Joint Research Centre (JRC) de la Comisión Europea:
After a 1 percent decline in 2009, global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions increased by more than 5 percent in 2010, which is unprecedented in the last two decades, but similar to 1976, when the global economy was recovering from the first oil crisis and subsequent stock market crash. Continuing growth in the developing nations and economic recovery in the industrialised countries drove the record-breaking 5.8 percent increase in global CO2 emissions to the all-time high of 33.0 billion tonnes, even though these have not returned to pre-recession levels in most industrialised countries. CO2 emissions went up in most of the major economies, led by China, USA, India and EU-27 with increases of 10 percent, 4 percent, 9 percent and 3 percent respectively.
