Global per capita CO₂ emissions probably peaked a decade ago.
Thanks for this! I was having a conversation about global warming with a family member two days ago and I wish I had these graphs at the ready!
Does data point to this peaking being equitable? For example, how much is due to increasing availability of clean energy for people in energy poverty, compared to increasing proportion of clean energy for people that already are energy sufficient or energy-rich? Another way of putting it is that it would be concerning if the peak were due to an increasing trend in energy poverty (see this post for context for my comment: https://ourworldindata.org/worlds-energy-problem)
I am not a PhD, and don't play 1 on TV, so i have just a couple questions on this whole CO2 "problem".
What is it that plants use as food, along with water, to grow? When there is a large amount of this food, what happens to plants? When you remove this from the food chain, what happens to plants and their ability to reproduce and to produce seeds(the parts of plants humans use as food)? 🤔
