A Big Jump in CO2 Emissions

An interesting post from Clean Break about a big jump in CO2 emissions.

"The bad news: Emissions from the United States, China, India and other developing countries took a giant leap in 2010, bringing total global emissions 6 per cent higher than the previous year, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Energy."

A 6% increase in CO2 from one year to the next is a huge increase. Reducing CO2 emissions down to 350 ppm, a level deemed safe, becomes increasingly difficult when emissions are growing so fast.
