Global Carbon Project

The volume of global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) from 2000 to 2007 grew four times faster than during the previous decade. Even on the most worst-case scenario of climate change, scientists could not be assumed that the concentration of greenhouse gases will be so big. This unprecedented and astonishing acceleration in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, despite made within ten years of international efforts to combat global warming. In a report published by an international team of experts Global Carbon Project (GCP) states that the greatest contribution to greenhouse gas emissions contribute Asia: China overtook the United States and became the first country in the world by CO2 emissions in 2007, while India is about to take away her third place Russia. The greatest growth in emissions observed in developing countries, mainly in China and India, whereas in developed countries experienced slower growth. According to GCP, the amount of global CO2 emissions reached the equivalent of 10 billion tons of carbon, of which 8.5 billion tons are produced by burning fossil fuels. In 2007 emission in China reached 1.8 billion tons of CO2, against 1.59 billion tons in the United States, 432 million tons in Russia and 430 million tonnes in India. Global warming leads to the disappearance of Arctic ice and the animals inhabiting them Number ice in polar waters decreases from year to year. The consequences of global warming on Earth primarily experienced by wildlife of the Arctic seas – polar bears, seals, walruses and other animals.
