Global CO2 emissions rise 3 pct in 2011

 

According to a new EU report, global carbon dioxide emissions rose 3 percent to 34 billion tonnes in 2011, undermining a UN goal to limit the rise in global average temperatures to 2 degree Celsius above industrial levels by 2050. The report was published by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. It states that nations cannot emit more than 1.500 trillion tonnes of CO2 between 2000 and 2050 to meet the threshold recommended by a UN scientific panel. According to the report, China’s emissions rose last year by 800 million tonnes of CO2 to 9.7 billion tonnes, an increase of 9 percent. Meanwhile, US emissions fell by 110 million tonnes, or 2 percent, to 5.42 billion tonnes of CO2. China surpassed the US as the world’s biggest of emitter of carbon dioxide in 2009, and now represents 29 percent of global emissions versus 16 percent for the US, the report said. The EU accounts for 11 percent, India 6 percent, Russia 5 percent and Japan 4 percent. Soaring emissions in China, the world’s second largest economy, means the country’s per capita emissions now have reached 7.2 tonnes, higher than EU nations such as France, Italy and Spain. Beijing has set itself a target of reducing its CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by 40-45 percent from 2005 levels by 2020, but its rapid economic growth means the country’s emissions continue to skyrocket in absolute terms. However, Australia remains the world’s biggest emitter of CO2 emissions per capita among major nations at 19 tonnes, followed by the US at 17.3 tonnes and Saudi Arabia at 16.5 tonnes.
