Decreased Carbon Dioxide

Research suggests that the economic downturn may mean the biggest carbon emission drop in 40 years.

A report by the International Energy Agency predicts that global carbon emissions have dropped by 2.6 percent in 2009, which is the biggest drop in 40 years. Researchers attribute the decrease to the economic crisis, citing a slowdown in international industry and trade. Due to be released in November, the report's findings could benefit political leaders as nations struggle to find a shared solution to climate change. World leaders met at the United Nations yesterday for a summit meeting to discuss ways to fight global warming. While reduced carbon emissions may be temporary, they can generate discussion regarding the limitation of carbon dioxide output in favor of cleaner fuels.
