Data on CO2 emissions updated

Gapminder World now incorporates the latest update on carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels. This update adds more recent data and makes some corrections for earlier years. Data are now available from 1751-2005.

See this example graph which shows CO2 emissions per person against income per person, with the bubble size representing total CO2 emissions.

Who has the oil, and who uses it?

We have added 24 new data series with data on consumption and production of oil, natural gas, coal and other energy sources.The source of these data is BP’s World Statistical Review 2008.

We think these are fascinating data: they show you who has the oil and who uses it, the remarkable close relationship between energy consumption and income, and many other interesting relationships.
