Émissions de carbon
PNB par personne, PNB par personne et par heure.
Émissions de carbon per GDP et par heure.

Global Warming    
Aujourd'hui, pour chacun des plus de 6,5 milliards des habitants de notre planète, plus de 7 tonnes de CO2 sont émis dans l'air par année. Comme résultat de nos activités la concentration de ce gaz à effet de serre a augmenté par presque 30 pourcent.    
    Depuis le chargement de cette page tonnes de CO2
ont été émis dans l'atmosphère en minutes et secondes.   
(761 tonnes/seconde = 2 736 000 tonnes/heure.)
Nous sommes de l'avis que les comptes des émissions par pays ne font pas de sense parce que ce que nous utilisons est produit dans toutes les régions de notre planète. Pour cette raison la meilleure approximation de notre poids consommatrice sur la terre et de notre part individuel dans les émissions de CO2 est notre budget de consommation.
(certificats d'émissions)
The world GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is approximately 44 500 000 millions of US Dollars per year. Carbon emissions are 24 000 million tons or 24 000 000 million kilograms per year. Thus, one US Dollar GDP represents 0,54 kilograms of CO2.

So, if your personal budget is 50 000 US Dollars per year, you are responsible for 27 000 kilograms or 27 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

So what? - How does this relate to individual country emissions accounts?
World carbon emissions are 24.000 million tons per year. Individual countries' emissions are: USA
  • GDP of the European Union 13,446,050 millions of US Dollars (30 %) =
  • GDP of the United States 12,485,725 millions of US Dollars (28 %).

    Carbon Credits

    A Carbon Credit is a certificate that certifies the right to emit a certain amount of carbon dioxide. Carbon Credits are issued by a country or by a group of countries, e.g. the EU. The authorities set the amount of Carbon Credits available to an industry sector. A company that emits less CO2 than the amount set by the aurhorites can sell its surplus on a Carbon Credit market. Companies who emit too much CO2 can must buy Carbon Credits. They can also offset their surplus emissions by investing in waht are deemed t0 be relatively carbon-neutral projects in developing countries.

    The environmental NGOs have from start been critical of this scheme, as can be seen from the below "Carbon Credit" bill that was distributed at the Kyoto conference of The Hague in 2000.

    It reads:
    1 Carbon Credit
      the value of the credit will go up and down
      according to global market speculation
      and is at no time under any circumstances
      in any way related to any known concept or estimate
      of the ecological cost of industrial and corporate behaviour.

        May be exchanged for nuclear power station,
        genetically modified forest or other
        similarly destructive project.
        This bill is solely for the purpose of increasing
        corporate profit and should not be considered as
        a viable solution to climate change.
    The small print along the edges reads:
      to complete your carbon portfolio we recommend investment in futures carbon exchange markets. this will allow you to manipulate future energy production and consumption and ensure that no independent democratic body can make decisions which could interfere with your macroeconomic preferences, projected profit path and reliance on exploitation of the environment and people >
    We don't believe that carbon trading will help the environment in any way. In fact we argue that the Kyoto Protocol itself is a waste of time and money. The effort should be spent on direct measures to reduce our impact on the environment, that is reducing the scale and the speed of our economic activities as well as relocalising economic structures. Compare Useless Kyoto.
