Transportation emission Transportation emission
More recently, however, the focus of the industry and its regulators – encouraged by far greater awareness of the importance of environmental issues amongst all stakeholders – has also been on the wider potential impacts which shipping can have on the environment. In particular, there was awareness of the need to address the impact on local ecosystems of foreign microorganisms imported in ships’ ballast water; the danger to public health and the ...

Projected annual CO2 emissions from the shipping sector Projected annual CO2 emissions from the shipping sector
In July 2011, international shipping became the first industrial sector to adopt binding international rules for the adoption of technical measures to reduce CO2 emissions. These technical measures were adopted by IMO as amendments to MARPOL Annex VI which is expected to enter into force in 2013.

Regional mercury emissions in 2010 Regional mercury emissions in 2010
Global emissions of mercury to the air in 2010 from human activities were estimated at 1,960 tonnes. Although it is difficult to compare emissions estimates for individual years, total anthropogenic emissions of mercury to the atmosphere appear to have been relatively stable from 1990 to 2010 (UNEP, 2013). There has been a large shift in regional patterns, however. Economic growth has driven an increase in anthropogenic emissions in Southern and ...

Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases
The graph shows Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1990 to 1995 and projections to 2020 according to second national communications to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases have several anthropogenic sources including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

The graph shows Icelandic emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1985 to 1995 with projections to 2010 according to second national communications to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases are largely produced by human activities, including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

Projections to 2020 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions Projections to 2020 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions
The graphic shows emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1990 to 1995, with projections to 2020. The main greenhouse gases are CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6. GLobal warming is largely believed to be the result of emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

CO2 emissions in 1990 and 2000 Latin America and selected countries CO2 emissions in 1990 and 2000 Latin America and selected countries
A comparison of the total level of CO2 emissions from Latin America compared to selected countries. Emissions from Latin America and Caribbean increased more than the world average between 1990 and 2000. The increase inthis region was more than 35% while the total increase in the world's emission (excluding land use change) was almost 13%. In South America the increase came mainly from industry and transport, where emissions increased by more t...

Tropical hydropower dams as greenhouse sources Tropical hydropower dams as greenhouse sources
Large tropical hydropower reservoirs in Latin America may have a potential adverse impact on the climatic system through releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Submerging large areas of land and tropical vegetation under water and fluctuations in water level promote physical-chemical processes that decompose the organic matter and generate methane and carbon dioxide emissions. In the initial years of operation, emission levels are especi...

Major CH4 emitting countries in Latin America and caribbean Major CH4 emitting countries in Latin America and caribbean
Shows the main producers of CH4 from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and the source of the emissions. Brazil, a leading cattle-ranching country, has the highest methane emission level in the region and is one of the world’s biggest emitters of methane (CH4). Most of the methane emissions in the region are generated by agriculture.

Total world CO2 emissions from coal, gas and oil Total world CO2 emissions from coal, gas and oil
The graphic shows the world's total CO2 emissions in million metric tonnes carbon equivalent. Broken down into categories of total fuel fossil emissions, oil, natural gas and coal. CO2 is one of the main greenhouse gases and can, in addition to fossil fuel combustion( as shown on graph), be produced by cement production and land use conversion such as deforestation.

Temperature trends and projections Temperature trends and projections
Using the IS92 emission scenarios, projected global mean temperature changes relative to 1990 were calculated up to 2100. Climate models calculate that the global mean surface temperature could rise by about 1 to 4.5 centigrade by 2100. The topmost curve is for IS92e, assuming constant aerosol concentrations beyond 1990 and high climate sensitivity of 4.5 °C. The lowest curve is for IS92c and assumes constant aerosol concentrations beyond 1990 an...
