U.N. Report Warns of Creeping CO2 Emissions
Haider Rizvi

UNITED NATIONS, Nov 1 (IPS) - Alarmed by the results of a new study, United Nations experts on climate change are urging the world's industrialised nations to introduce further cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

The industrial world's emissions of greenhouse gases are growing again, they said in a report released by the Secretariat of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change this week.

The report, "Greenhouse Gas Data 2006", shows that despite efforts to cap carbon dioxide emissions, greenhouse gas emissions in many countries of the industrialised world continued to grow from 2000 to 2004.

Overall emissions had dropped by 3.3 percent in the 1990-2004 period, which, according to researchers, mainly owed to a 36.8 percent decrease in eastern and central European countries.

Within the same period, the greenhouse gas emissions of the other industrialised countries that have signed the Framework Convention increased by 11 percent.
