“As 2018 is not yet over – and somewhat limited data is available – these projections are still subject to large uncertainties. The Global Carbon Project will publish more complete 2018 numbers in early 2019 when all the data is available. However, it is clear that the rise in emissions from fossil fuels in 2018 will be the largest in quite some time.”
This year’s increase in carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry is the largest in seven years. CO2 in the atmosphere has hit a new high.
