Interactive Map: Tracking EU carbon emissions

With European leaders making important decisions about the continent's energy future, this interactive map from the World Resources Institute tracks global carbon emissions and how they've changed over the past two centuries.

The map visualises how global emissions have developed over time and provides a snapshot ahead of the EU climate talks

The European Council - 28 EU Government leaders - will meet this week (23-24 October) in Brussels to discuss and reach a final agreement on the 2030 climate and energy policy framework. 

---edie explains: the EU climate talks---

The main objective of the October climate talks is for EU leaders to reach agreement on the outlines of the 2030 EU's climate and energy policy. The EU leaders must also agree on which targets should be binding. 

The three topics up for discussion are: 

- The percentage by which greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions should be reduced by 2030. 
- The percentage of energy that should come from renewables by 2030. 
- The percentage by which the EU's energy efficiency should be improved by 2030.  

This interactive map visualises how EU emissions have developed over time and provides a snapshot ahead of the potential target to reduce EU domestic GHG emissions by 40% by 2030.
