Statistics

Normally, data and statistics are not considered to be very interesting. In the field of renewable energies and climate protection, however, they document progressive development. Trends can be derived from them that are anything but boring.

Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions and Concentration in Atmosphere

Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions and Concentration in Atmosphere

Only 10 countries are responsible for about two thirds of the global carbon dioxide emissions. The global emissions from fuel combustion have more than doubled since 1970 and increased 15 times since beginning of the last century. If this trend continues extreme climate changes are unavoidable.
