America and China are emitting the most greenhouse gas, know where India stands

New Delhi : India’s per capita greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 were well below the global average, according to a new report released by the United Nations Environment Program on Thursday. According to the report, in India it was 2.4 tCO2e (tonne carbon dioxide equivalent) while the global average was 6.3 tCO2e. The ‘Emissions Gap Report 2022’ was released ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) to be held in Egypt next month. It also said that the international community is still far behind the Paris goals. At the same time, there does not appear to be a reliable way to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C.

Paris Agreement to tackle climate change
To address the problem of climate change, various countries signed the Paris Agreement in 2015 to limit global temperature rise this century to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. According to the report, the global average per capita greenhouse gas emissions (including land use, land-use change and forestry) in 2020 stood at 6.3 TCO2e. In the US, it was 14 tCO2e, which is much higher than the global average.

According to the report, greenhouse gas emissions per capita were 13 tCO2e in Russia, 9.7 tCO2e in China, about 7.5 tCO2e in Brazil and Indonesia, and 7.2 tCO2e in the European Union, according to the report. According to the report, “India is well below the global average with 2.4 TCO2e. On average, less developed countries emit 2.3 TCO2e of greenhouse gas per capita annually. It states that there is a wide gap in per capita emissions between G20 countries and India. U.S. emissions are almost half of the G20 average, while in Saudi Arabia it is twice the G20 average.
