The Global Carbon Project: anticipating the evolution of CO2 trends

Held on 22nd March 2011

In spite of growing recognition of the role of CO2 for global warming, CO2 emissions from fossil fuel burning have accelerated in the past 10 years.
The Global Carbon Project seeks to provide latest figures on the emissions and sinks of CO2, and to anticipate the trends for the coming years.
Economic drivers and the shift towards coal as a fuel source are key to the recent growth in CO2 emissions, but the first signs of impacts from regional and international policies to limit CO2 emissions are beginning to appear.

The presentation below reviews the efforts to provide latest information on the emissions and sinks of CO2 by the scientific community through the Global Carbon Project.
