Global Carbon Emissions Rise to 37.1 Gigatons, Here Is What We Can Do

The Global Carbon Project report states that the major driver of the 2018 increase was higher electricity demand worldwide, leading to more coal-burning – primarily by China and India as their economies grew and more oil used in transport. Emissions in China were up 4.7% and India by 6.3% year on year. However, almost all countries are contributing to the accelerating emission rates.

HeatX at the 2018 International Pittsburgh Coal Conference
