It’s Not Werking.

You will be happy to note (NOT!) that as your powerbill and your cost of living and your fuel bill rises astronomically (so we can all be Green and Save-the-planet) that there wasn’t even a blip on the amount of “Carbon” output.

Nothing.

Zero.

Zilch.

Nada

No effect whatsoever.

The GFC slowed the decadent First World up a bit, but the prosperous emerging Third World just powered ahead, more than making up for it.

Global CO2 emissions soar despite efforts by industrialised countries

“Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the main cause of global warming – increased by 45 % between 1990 and 2010, reaching an all-time high of 33 billion tonnes in 2010. These findings were published on Wednesday 21 September in the report “Long-term trend in global CO2 emissions”, prepared by the JRC’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) and PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency.

The report shows that increased energy efficiency, nuclear energy and the growing contribution of renewable energy are not compensating for the globally increasing demand for power and transport, which is strongest in developing countries. The document is based on recent results from the Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) and latest statistics for energy use and other activities.”
