A recent report showed how despite global efforts, there is no improvement in reducing the scar of greenhouse gas emissions. It had found that global carbon dioxide emission rate escalated to 3% to 34 billion tons in 2011, thereby raising a huge question in the minds of one and all.
The report, which was unveiled by the European Union, also stressed on the role played by China in dealing with the same crisis. If reports from the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the European Commission’s Joint Research Center are to be referred to, it has been found that China’s CO2 emissions have gone up by some 0.9% in 2011, which is a shocking stat in the first place. This has also proved that the price control mechanisms along with stern market regulations could not deliver the expected results for China.
While US retained its place among the top emitters of greenhouse gas emissions with 17.3 tons of CO2 per resident, it was found that the 27-nation European Union released 7.5 tons of CO2 per person. “Although all developing countries together increased their emissions on average by 6 percent, the increases in China and India caused by far the largest increase in global emissions”, said the report.
It would be worth seeing if the report would be able to change the stance taken by the U. N. member nations in their fight against greenhouse gas emissions.
