Nice Chart on Last 20 Years of CO2 Emissions

Der Spiegel has a nice chart on CO2 emissions, showing changes from 1990 to 2010. Over that period emissions from the US, Europe, Russia and Japan are essentially flat -- which I guess is sort of a victory, these days, even though it's mostly due to the economic downturn of the last few years. Most of the growth in the last two decades comes from China and other developing countries (besides India). You can't blame them though -- the U.S. has still put more than its share of CO2 into the atmosphere -- 30% from 1900 to 2004.

Charting the rise in CO2 emissions.

I'm really busy and won't have much to say here for another few days.

The USA has demonstrated that it can reduce emissions by 1 Gt/yr in two years. Congratulations! Keep the efforts deliberately!
