CO2 rise puts pressure on Paris targets

Graphic News

November 13, 2017 -- World carbon emissions in 2017 are projected to rise for the first time in four years, dashing hopes that a peak might soon be reached. The main cause for the rise has been greater use of coal in China.

The new data indicate that in 2017 emissions of CO2 from all human activities grew by about 2% globally.

The Global Carbon Project found 21 countries — including the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and Sweden — have managed to cut their emissions significantly while growing their economies over the past decade.

Under the Paris agreement, China has pledged that its overall emissions will peak by 2030. China’s emissions growth appeared to be slowing in 2017, while India’s carbon dioxide emissions increased just 2 percent this year, in contrast to the 6 percent annual growth seen over the past decade.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
