Global Climate Change

With regard to GHGs the prognosis is less promising. As illustrated in Fig. 6.6, CO2 equivalent emissions from the transportation sector grew significantly in the Developed (Annex 1) countries between 1990 and 2004 [18]. In fact, the growth in the transportation sector, 24%, was by far the largest of any during this period as shown in Fig. 6.7.
