CLIMATE ACTION LEADERS

Posted on: September 11, 2021

THIS POST IS A STUDY OF REGIONAL CLIMATE ACTION PLANS WITH DATA PROVIDED BY STATISTA DATED DECEMBER 2020.

LINK TO STATISTA: https://www.statista.com/statistics/266138/climate-change-the-countries-with-the-highest-achievements/

THE CLIMATE ACTION LEADERS AND THEIR PERFORMANCE RATINGS ARE AS FOLLOWS

#1: SWEDEN – EMISSIONS 49.7E6 POPULATION 10.3E6, GDP $612E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 74.42

#2: UK- EMISSIONS 302E6 POPULATION 66.7E6, GDP $1.96E12: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 69.66

#3: DENMARK- EMISSIONS: 38E6, POPULATION 5.8E6, GDP $352.24E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 69.42

#4: MOROCCO – EMISSIONS: 75E6, POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $113.6E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 67.59

#5: NORWAY- POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $362E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 65.45

#6: CHILE – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $252.8E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 64.05

#7: INDIA – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $3050E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 63.98

#8: FINLAND – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $270.64E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 62.63

#9: MALTA – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $14.6E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 62.21

#10: LATVIA – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $33.5E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 61.88

#11: SWITZERLAND – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $747.4E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 60.85

#12: LITHUANIA – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $14.8E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 58.03

#13: EU – POPULATION 10.3 MILLION, GDP $15167E9: CLIMATE ACTION RATING 57.29

NOT INCLUDING THE EU WE HAVE THE 12 CLIMATE ACTION LEADERS OF THE WORLD WITH A TOTAL GDP OF 7754E9 USD REPRESENTING ABOUT 10% OF GLOBAL GDP. WITH THE EU INCLUDED WE HAVE A TOTAL CLIMATE ACTION LEADERSHIP GDP OF 22921E9 USD OR 27% OF THE WORLD’S GDP.

THE RATE OF RISE IN ATMOSPHERIC CO2 CONCENTRATION OVER THE PERIOD 1980-2020 ARE SHOWN BELOW. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE HEROIC SACRIFICIAL EFFORT OF THE 12 COUNTRIES LISTED ABOVE HAS HAD ANY IMPACT ON THE STEADY RISE IN ATMOSPHERIC CO2 CONCENTRATION.

WE CONCLUDE FROM THE ANALYSIS ABOVE THAT THESE DATA SUGGEST ONE OF TWO POSSIBILITIES. FIRST, THE DATA MAY SUGGEST THAT CLIMATE ACTION NEEDS TO BE GLOBAL AND ANYTHING SHORT OF GLOBAL HAS NO CLIMATE ACTION INTERPRETATION. IF THAT IS NOT THE CASE, WE CONCLUDE THAT THE OBSERVED RISE IN ATMOSPHERIC CO2 CONCENTRATION IS NOT RESPONSIVE TO FOSSIL FUEL EMISSIONS.

THE FIRST OPTION, THAT CLIMATE ACTION NEEDS TO BE GLOBAL TO BE EFFECTIVE IS EXPLORED IN A RELATED POST#1: LINK: https://tambonthongchai.com/2021/02/23/renewable-energy-statistics/ . THE IMPLICATION IS THAT SHORT OF A GLOBALLY COORDINATED CLIMATE ACTION PROGRAM TO CUT GLOBAL EMISSIONS – WHAT THE UN WAS EXPECTED TO DELIVER BY WHAT THE UN FAILED TO DELIVER, – SHORT OF THAT, CLIMATE ACTION HEROISM OF NATION STATES, HOWEVER MANY, HAS NO CLIMATE ACTION INTERPRETATION.

THE SECOND POSSIBILITY, THAT THE OBSERVED RISE IN ATMOSPHERIC CO2 CONCENTRATION IS NOT DRIVEN BY FOSSIL FUEL EMISSIONS, IS EXPLORED IN ANOTHER RELATED POST ON THIS SITE. LINK: https://tambonthongchai.com/2020/11/21/the-case-against-fossil-fuels/

The measured increase in atmospheric CO2 over the last 60 years is great news, because it means more food at no additional cost.

The more CO2 that can be recycled into the atmosphere and the ocean from hydrocarbon usage the more robust the photosynthesis cycle becomes, and the more CaCO3 is created, the basis of our food chain in the ocean.

CO2 is not a pollutant.

Less atmospheric CO2 means less life on this planet.

Well said. Thank you Ruben.
