Hello there

I've been searching the internet for any information about the total carbon emissions for this year (tonnes/year). However, I've only come across data which is most recently been gather a few years ago (2009 - 2011). However, I'm really curious to what the total emissions are between 2012 and 2013 considering the ppm jump from the last years data. Does anyone know where I can find such data? If so, could you direct me to the appropriate site or report?

Thanks

Perhaps you can calculate it.
What were the ppm and tons emitted in 2009, 2010, & 2011?
And what were the ppm at the end of 2012?

A quick scan through wiki indicates that there are lots of sources of CO2.
Are you looking just for man made sources?

But then again, you could just google: tons of co2 2012

I get lots of links with the answer. Though the answers vary a bit, depending on which article you read.

I saw an estimate this morning of merely 31.2 megatons.

Amazing the amount of carbon products we burn.

That's only about 4.3kg/person for the whole earth. Unfortunately the real figure would be 31,2 gigatons

Would you believe, that after waking up this morning, lying in bed, I said to myself; "I bet I typed 'mega'ton last night".

This is the second time in 5 years.

Thank you.
