Climate TRACE: Emissions Inventory

|
Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This robust interactive database features emissions of CO2e across all sectors and countries beginning in 2015.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The graphic design is clean and sharp.
  • Navigating this resource is intuitive and easy.

Additional Prerequisites

  • At the top of the page, students can explore by sector, country, and/or date.
  • Each sector has one or more subsectors.
  • Any dataset can be downloaded in CSV or JSON format, shared via a link, or shared on Twitter or Facebook.
  • Closer to the bottom of the page, students can click "sector," "country," "trends," and "data" to further explore the data.

Differentiation

  • Students can explore this inventory in a science or social studies class in response to the question "Where do global greenhouse gas emissions come from?"
  • There are many possibilities for extension in math class. One option is for each student to choose a country. Students could create pie charts, bar graphs, and line graphs from the data.
  • This inventory shows emissions beginning in 2015. Students could also watch this great video that looks at historical emissions as well.
Scientist Notes
The resource shows an inventory of CO2 equivalents from specific economic sectors. The method used in gathering data points is appropriate. Thus, datasets are insightful to understand and deduce the current trend of CO2 emissions from these sectors globally. This resource is recommended.
