Global carbon emissions to jump 40 per cent by 2030 without action
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 27 - 05 - 2009

The level of carbon emissions emitted into the Earth's atmosphere will surge nearly 40 per cent by 2030 if
governments can't force more limits on pollutants blamed for global
warming, dpa quoted a US government as reporting today.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) projected that energy
consumption will increase 44 per cent between 2006 and 2030, mainly
because of higher demands from the developing world.
While the use of renewable energies that have less of an impact on
climate change is expected to increase, the EIA said fossil fuels
like oil and coal are still likely to remain a major part of the
energy mix.
The price of crude oil will average about 110 dollars per barrel
by 2015 and 130 dollars per barrel by 2030, the EIA said. Oil is
currently valued around 60 dollars per barrel.
The report highlights the difficulties facing the international
community as governments consider how to lower carbon dioxide
emissions blamed for heating the planet. A much-anticipated climate
conference in Copenhagen in December will try to place more stringent
limits on global pollution.
The EIA said carbon dioxide emissions will jump 39 per cent by
2030 without action by governments to halt the pollution that causes
global warming, which scientists fear will cause a dangerous rise in
sea levels, stronger storms and endanger thousands of species.
A 2006 report by a panel of the world's top scientists - the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - urged governments
to halt the rise in global emissions by 2015 and reduce them at least
50 per cent by 2050.
About 94 per cent of the increase in energy consumption over the
next two decades will come from developing countries, including major
emerging powers like China, India and Brazil, the EIA said.
But those developing countries are looking for wealthy nations to
adopt tougher measures to combat their own pollution levels before
they go further.
The US Congress is currently considering legislation that would
cut emissions 17 per cent by 2015 and 80 per cent by 2050. The
European Union, which is already more energy efficient, is aiming to
cut its own emissions another 20 per cent by 2020.
The EIA said renewable fuels will make up 13 per cent of the
global energy mix by 2030, as many economies shift to cleaner
alternatives.
