Emissions of C02 in the main polluting countries.

Juan G. R. Emissions of C02 in the main polluting countries.

Water and Irrigation Vol .: 9, No. 1: 9-10, June 2018, Spain.

Global emissions of carbon dioxide have mainly increased due to the great impact of human activity and the increase in around 80 million / year of the world population. The CO2 emissions of the six most polluting countries are made up of China, the United States, India, the Russian Federation, Japan and Germany, all located in the northern hemisphere and together represent 61% of the world total. China and the USA, with a cumulative of 44%. The cumulative emissions of C02 from the countries located in the northern hemisphere are greater than 70% of the total. The emissions of greenhouse gases in cities represent a large percentage of the total in these countries, as indicated by different studies. It is considered that currently the total emissions of C02 are above the levels of 36,000,000 Kilotons.

Global emissions of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2), the main gas responsible for climate change, remain stable in 2016, according to estimates made by the Joint Research Center, which belongs to the European Commission and the Evaluation Agency Environment of the Netherlands, which analyzed information from 216 countries. In 2016, 35.8 Giga tons of C02 were achieved.

The CO2 emissions of the six most polluting countries are made up of China, the United States, India, the Russian Federation, Japan and Germany, all located in the northern hemisphere and together represent 61% of the world total. China and the USA, with a cumulative of 44%. The cumulative emissions of C02 from the countries located in the northern hemisphere are greater than 70% of the total.

Global emissions of carbon dioxide have fundamentally increased due to the great impact of human activity and the annual increase in around 80 million of the world population. It is considered that currently C02 emissions are above the levels of 36 000000 Kilotones.

Greenhouse gas emissions in cities represent a large percentage of the annual total, as indicated by different studies carried out in Beijing, New York, London, Tokyo, Seoul and other major polluting cities in the world.

With the development of humanity more than 50% of the world population lives in cities. Up to 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from cities, according to the UN. A global movement seeks to place on the public agenda the importance of cities and citizens in the fight to mitigate climate change.
