Global carbon emissions second consecutive year, "stagnation"

Date:March 16,2016

March 16, 2015 the International Energy Agency released preliminary emissions data to show in the context of the global economic growth rate higher than 3% of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions of about 321 million tons, essentially flat with the previous year . This is mainly due to China and developed countries use more green energy.

Since 1974, according to the International Energy Agency has information on carbon emissions, carbon emissions only occur in four stages stagnation or decline over the same period last year, the first three are the beginning of 1980, 1992 and 2009, these three stages and global economic weakness related.

The IEA noted that the past two years, the implementation of low-energy economy and government efforts to promote carbonization of coal power generation is the cause of declining use. Globally, coal consumption fell by about 2.3 percent, the biggest decline in 45 years. Especially in China by 2015 carbon emissions in the energy sector decreased significantly in 2015, coal-fired power generation accounts for China accounted for less than 70% of the young by 10 percentage points compared with 2011. At the same time, the proportion of hydropower and wind power and other low-carbon energy jumped from 19% to 28%. IEA Director Birol said that this is significant.

Greenpeace believes that the data of the International Energy Agency show that in some countries the climate and renewable energy policies are paying off, China's response to climate change and air pollution, efforts have begun to make a profit.
