Nya fakta om EUs utsläpp av koldioxid

European Environmental Agency kom idag med nya siffror på koldioxidutsläpp inom EU relativt Kyotomål, läs mer på http://themes.eea.europa.eu/IMS/IMS/ISpecs/ISpecification20040909113419/IAssessment1195226181050/view_content

Budskapet är detta:

”Total greenhouse gas emissions in the EU-27, excluding emission and removals from land-use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), decreased by 0.7 % between 2004 and 2005 and by 7.9 % between 1990 and 2005. Emissions decreased strongly in the new Member States during the 1990s but since 2000, the trends have been almost identical in the EU-15 and in the new Member States. Between 1990 and 2005, greenhouse gas emissions decreased in all sectors except in the transport sector, where they increased significantly.

In the EU-15, total greenhouse gas emissions (excluding LULUCF) decreased by 0.8 % between 2004 and 2005, by 1.5 % between 1990 and 2005 and by 2.0 % between the Kyoto base year and 2005. This means the EU-15 has achieved one fourth of the total reduction needed to achieve the 8 % reduction from base-year level required by 2008-2012 under the Kyoto Protocol. However, the target can also be reached through actions outside the EU (use of Kyoto mechanisms).

In the 12 new Member States, total greenhouse gas emissions (excluding LULUCF) decreased by 0.3 % between 2004 and 2005 and by 27.8 % between 1990 and 2005. Except in Slovenia, 2005 emissions of all the new Member States that have a Kyoto target were well below their Kyoto target.”

Bilden visar utsläppen från EU-15, EU-27 och de nya medlemsländerna utvecklats med år 2000 som basår. Trenden är den välkända och många av de gamla EU-länderna har svårt att klara sina åtaganden och transportsektorn är klart bidragande. När ska det komma att på allvar påverkan transportpolitik och ekonomiska styrmedel för transportsektorn?
