recent data from the International energy council (international energy AGENCY), shows that emissions will remain at 33 gt in 2019, even though the global economy grew by 2.9 per cent. It is a trend for the two years, the growth in emissions.
that the emissions do not increase in a decrease in emissions from electricity generation in the developed economies, as a result of the application of renewable sources such as solar and wind power played an increasingly important role. Moreover, natural gas has replaced coal as a fuel source, and nuclear power production also increased. Among the minor elements can be found more mild weather conditions in a number of countries, the slower economic growth in some emerging markets, according to the International energy council.
The main utsläppsminskaren purely quantitative terms, the united states was first out of the 140 million tons of carbon dioxide by 2019. The country has reduced its emissions by almost a gt since the year 2000, when it dropped off the most. In the EUROPEAN union reduced emissions by 160 million metric tons, which is equivalent to five per cent.
the EUROPEAN union, the united states and Japan, but there was an increase in emissions in the world, with around 400 tonnes in 2019. Almost 80 per cent of the growth originated in the asian countries in which the kolkraftsdriven production has continued to increase.
" Now, we need to work hard to make sure that from 2019 will be remembered as the ultimate peak in global emissions, it is not just a temporary pause in the growth. We have the technology to get there, and need to use it to its full extent, " says Fatih Birol, the managing director of the International energy council, in a press release.<
