Energy-related carbon-dioxide emissions in 2010 the highest in history, according to latest estimates by the International Energy Agency, 30 May [2] After a dip in 2009 caused by the global financial crisis, emissions are estimated to have climbed to a record 30.6 Gigatonnes (Gt), a 5% jump from the previous record year in 2008, when levels reached 29.3 Gt.

Net transfer in emissions from developing to developed countries through international trade increased from 0.4 billion tonnes of CO2 in 1990 to 1.6 billion tonnes in 2008. This exceeds the 0.7 billion tonne reduction that developed nations must make each year to meet their Kyoto targets, say the authors of a recent study published in US scientific journal Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences. 4 May [3]
