Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Carbon dioxide is a known driver of climate change, which impacts average temperature. Global historical carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels have been on the rise since the industrial revolution. In 2018, carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion and industrial processes reached over 36 billion metric tons. OECD countries are expected to have the highest per capita emissions of carbon dioxide by the year 2050. Among all countries globally, China was the highest emitter of carbon dioxide emissions in recent years.
