Greenhouse gas giants

Data is Plural: “Carbon Majors, run by the UK-based InfluenceMap, “is a database of historical production data from 122 of the world’s largest oil, gas, coal, and cement producers.” It attributes to these producers 1,421 metric gigatons of CO2-equivalent emissions from 1854 through 2022. Launched last month, the database provides downloads at several levels of granularity. The least granular version indicates the emissions calculated for each entity-year combination. The most granular version breaks those emissions down by commodity produced, quantity of commodity produced, emitting activity, and reporting entity.”
