Supplementary notes

* According to the source, carbon emissions in this statistic reflect only those through consumption of oil, gas and coal, and are based on standard global average conversion factors. This does not allow for any carbon that is sequestered, for other sources of carbon emissions, or for emissions of other greenhouse gases.
Data prior to 2007 was taken from the BP Statistical Review data worksheet.
