Greenhouse Gases and the Kyoto Protocol

The United Nations Environment Programme UNEP/ GRID Arendal Website (described in the June 24, 1998 Scout Report for Science & Engineering) summarizes greenhouse gas emissions for 1998 and provides projections for 2010. The maps and statistics presented here are based on data collected by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for the international summit in The Hague, November 2000. Units for totals are "thousands of metric tonnes of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) equivalent units," and for emissions per capita, the units are "tonnes of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) equivalent per person." In every case, emissions from industrialized nations are what the viewer might expect. Nevertheless, the comparison of 1998 and projected future levels is certainly instructive. A series of links provides access to additional related information.
