(AP) WASHINGTON - The global output of heat-trapping carbon dioxide jumped by the biggest amount on record, the U.S. Department of Energy calculated, a sign of how feeble the world's efforts are at slowing man-made global warming.

The new figures for 2010 mean that levels of greenhouse gases are higher than the worst case scenario outlined by climate experts just four years ago.

"The more we talk about the need to control emissions, the more they are growing," said John Reilly, co-director of MIT's Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.

The world pumped about 564 million more tons of carbon into the air in 2010 than it did in 2009. That's an increase of 6 percent. That amount of extra pollution eclipses the individual emissions of all but three countries - China, the United States and India, the world's top producers of greenhouse gases.

China's mining methods kill 15 miners a day. Also, they accidentally start fires in the mines and then just abandon them to burn. 62 underground fires are burning and wasting millions of tons of coal around China and this adds 3% to the greenhouse gas emmisions when the smoke and methane seep up through the ground. Some of these fires have been burning costantly for years. I read an article about this some years ago in the Reader's Digest and the same fires were still burning in recent articles:http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2008/11/17/55758/chinas-coal-fires-belch-fumes.html

Apparently China and India are the worst but other countries have this underground wasteful,polluting burning in abandoned mineworkings too.
