The structured data from the CAIT Pre-2020 Pledges Map enables users to explore, compare, and assess climate change mitigation pledges submitted by Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2009 and 2010.
CAIT 2.0, WRI’s climate data explorer, provides free access to comprehensive, reliable, and comparable greenhouse gas emissions data sets.
It also provides other climate-relevant indicators, to enable analysis on a wide range of climate-related data questions.
This interactive reveals how national CO₂ emissions have changed over the past 150 years.
For the top 10 US state emitters, shown in this graph, the results are varied.
This CAIT 2.0 project graph reveals 2010 data of power plant capacity by initial year of operation.
Cutting power sector emissions is not new at the state level. According to the 2011 U.S. data available through CAIT 2.0, 42 states reduced their emissions relative to 2005, the baseline used in the U.S. GHG reduction pledge.
The power sector comprises the largest share of U.S. GHG emissions, contributing nearly one-third of all emissions from all sectors.
