Half of global historic fossil fuel and
cement emissions of CO2 since 1988
The Climate Accountability Institute is today releasing an analysis
of global fossil fuel and cement emissions of CO2 since 1751 that calculates
the proportion emitted since 1988 ‹ when the evidence and risks of
human-caused warming first became widely known.
Worksheet on historic CO2 emissions from 1751 to 2014, with half since 1988.
