Some 71 per cent of global emissions are produced by just 100 companies, a new greenhouse gases (GHG) study has found.

In a Carbon Majors report, CDP, formerly known of the Carbon Disclosure Project, and the Climate Accountability Institute, outed many of the worst corporate offenders when it comes to pollution.

The study claims the contribution of fossil fuels to global of warming has “doubled,” while just 100 companies have caused 71 per cent of methane and carbon dioxide emissions since 1988.

Out of the 100 companies, 36 of the firms are at least partially state-owned, including Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, National Iranian Oil and Coal India. ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, Chevron, Peabody and Total are among the privately-owned companies in the report.

“If the trend in fossil fuel extraction continues over the next 28 years as it has over the previous 28, then global average temperatures would be on course to rise around 4 degrees celsius… by the end of the century,” the report states.

It does make me laugh when people go on about Trump leaving the Climate Accord.  But in the second chart of the appendix, how many of the polluters  are American?

 

The faux outrage....
