CAIT 2.0, WRI’s climate data explorer, provides free access to comprehensive, reliable, and comparable greenhouse gas emissions data sets, as well as other climate-relevant indicators, to enable analysis on a wide range of climate-related data questions.
The CAIT 2.0 Country GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and internationally comparable data set for 186 countries. CAIT 2.0 enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, country/state, and sector.
The CAIT 2.0 U.S. State GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and comparable data set for all U.S. states. CAIT 2.0 enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, state, and sector.
Total global emissions grew 12.7% between 2000 and 2005, an average of 2.4% a year.
**This chart is a comprehensive view of global, anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The availability of relevant, accurate and objective data is essential for sound and transparent decision making and policy development.
This flow chart shows the sources and activities across the U.S. economy that produce greenhouse gas emissions. Energy use is by far responsible for the majority of greenhouse gases.
This figure shows the relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and GDP. Even when emissions targets point downward, they may not necessarily imply a significant departure from business as usual.
