In light of the demonstration by Australian school students and others on Friday, March 15th 2019, I went looking for some information regards Australia’s contribution to Global Warming.

Greenhouse Gas Emission


And what I found was interesting – You might think from the Labour and Greens side of politics that Australia was a significant contributor to Green House Gas emissions. Couldn’t be further from the truth.

Australia doesn’t figure in the top 10 and in fact we’re a very minor player in this area. The buck stops with China (26.83%), USA (14.36%) India (6.65%) and The European Union (9.66%) for a total of 57.5% of the total GHG emission of 43737.3 Million Tons.

Global contribution to Green House Gas emissions

Australia

Energy                                  422.7 Million Tons or .97% of the total global emission output

Agriculture                          124.5 Million Tons or .28% of the total

Total                                      580.1 Million Tons or 1.33% of the total global emission output

USA

Energy                                  5495 Million Tons or 12.56% of the total global emission output

Agriculture                          351.6 Million Tons or .8% of the total

Industry                               270.0 Million Tons or .62%

Total                                      6279.8 Million Tons or 14.36% of the total global emission output

China

Energy                                  9430.2 Million Tons or 21.56% of the total global emission output

Agriculture                          124.5 Million Tons or .28% of the total  global emission output

Industry                               1408.4 Million Tons or 3.22% of the total global emission output

Total                                      11735 Million Tons or 26.83% of the total global emission output

India

Energy                                  2027.9 Million Tons or 4.64% of the total global emission output

Agriculture                          628.3 Million Tons or 1.44 of the total global emission output  

Industry                               192.6 Million Tons or .44% of the total global emission output    

Total                                      2909.1 Million Tons or 6.65% of the total global emission output

European Union

Energy                                  3474.8 Million Tons or 7.94% of the total global emission output

Agriculture                          407.2 Million Tons or.93% of the total global emission output

Industry                               202.2 Million Tons or .46% of the total global emission output    

Total                                      4224.5 Million Tons or 9.66% of the total global emission output

So let’s see if we can have a realistic look at greenhouse issues rather than thinking that we alone can solve the problem

If the four main perpetrators of this problem aren’t willing to work on the issue, how do we as a small country in terms of the emissions expect to succeed without changing our way of life?
