Revenue, Debt, Inequality, and CO2 Emissions of the most Powerful Countries and Corporations The above chart compares the world's largest trans-national corporations with the wealthiest countries and nuclear powers: Revenue, Debt, Wealth Inequality, and CO2 Emissions.
World Cumulative CO2 Emissions
Fossil Fuel Production Gap Countries are planning to produce about 50% more fossil fuels by 2030 than would be consistent with a 2°C global average temperature rise, and 120% more than would be consistent with a 1.5°C rise. The production gap is largest for coal. By 2030, countries...
Top Emitters of CO2 Research reported in 2017 shows that just 100 fossil fuel producers emitted 71% of global industrial greenhouse gases from 1988 to 2015. 51% of industrial emissions since 1988 can be linked to just 25 producers, including both public and state-owned...

Historical and contemporary overview of greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric concentrations—which countries emit the most CO2, total and per capita; methane; ocean warming and sea level rise; global temperature projections; glacier and ice loss.
Historical Temperature and Major Greenhouse Gasses CO2 concentrations are well above historic maximum levels.* The GWP (Global Warming Potential) of methane gas (CH4) is greater than the GWP of CO2. Warming could release vast quantities of CH4 from thawing tundra and seabed methane hydrates. *Levels...
