Relative global warming potentials of various emissions, by contaminant

by Statista Research Department, last edited Sep 7, 2015
Global warming potential by gas type This statistic displays the relative global warming potential of various emissions, broken down by contaminant. A single mass of carbon dioxide is used as a baseline. Global warming potential measures how much heat a greenhouse gas is capable of trapping in the atmosphere. In a 20 year period, methane is capable of trapping 86 times the amount of heat that carbon dioxide traps.
