If you have ever wondered how much greenhouse gas (GHG) the world produces annually, you may now have a close estimation. The World Resources Institute, in partnership with the ASN Bank, Ecofys and DuurzaamBedrijfsleven.nl, published this week an updated flow chart detailing the global GHG emissions for the year 2010, when approximately 48,629 million tons of CO2-eq were released to the atmosphere.

The infographic shows that the human activities alone are responsible for 76% of the CO2 emissions, the main driver of global warming. It still points out the sectors that contribute the most to the world’s GHG emissions and identifies what kind of natural resources they use. Overall, the Industry sector accounts for 29% of these emissions, followed by the Transport and the Land Use Change sectors with 15% each.
