Re: CO2 emission by countries


I have been looking at the emission intensity figures quoted above and cannot find where they are listed on the quoted source as per the link above.

I tried to investigate the data on my own and wound up at the World Resources Institute Climate Analysis Indicator Tool at

This site lists emission figures for basically the entire planet.

Figures I obtained there disagreed substantially in some cases from those quoted above. For example, WRI/CAIT lists Denmark at about 290 gm CO2 e/kwhr as opposed to the quoted 840 above.

France comes in at about 80 on both scales.

This is important in view of the quoted comparisons of carbon emission intensity for power production in wind dependent Denmark versus nuclear France.

Look forward to clarification
