Visualizing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

A World GHG Emissions Flow Chart from WRI’s Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT).

CAIT provides a comprehensive and comparable database of greenhouse gas emissions data (including all major sources and sinks) and other climate-relevant indicators. CAIT can be used to analyze a wide range of climate-related data questions and to help support future policy decisions made under the Climate Convention and in other fora.

According to the site: All data is for 2000. All calculations are based on CO2 equivalents, using 100-year global warming potentials from the IPCC (1996).

  1. This visualization is superb. It’s of great reference and resource for my ‘Arctic World’ program in particular, which I present to Grades 4 and up in Ontario schools. (See RavenVenture website)

    Will the visual be updated at some point?

    Many thanks!
