Global warming is an urgent crisis that demands immediate action to prevent climate catastrophe. The consequences of inaction are far too great, and the time remaining to reduce those consequences is running out.
Executive summary: This study aims to shed light on the United States’
responsibility for taking the lead to solve global warming
as a result of its outsized role in causing the problem
in the first place. Using data from the Carbon Analysis
Indicators Tool maintained by the World Resources
Institute, the analysis examines state-by-state carbon
dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion from
1960-2005 and compares those emissions to 184 other
countries of the world.
