Just 90 Companies Are to Blame for Most Climate Change, This “Carbon accountant” Says

Heede’s research shows that nearly two-thirds of anthropogenic carbon emissions originated in just 90 companies and government-run industries. Among them, the top eight companies, ranked according to annual and cumulative emissions below, ¬†account for 20 percent of world carbon emissions from fossil fuels and cement production since the Industrial Revolution.The results showed that nearly two-thirds of the major industrial greenhouse gas emissions (from fossil fuel use, methane leaks, and cement manufacture) originated in just 90 companies around the world, which either emitted the carbon themselves or supplied carbon ultimately released by consumers and industry. As Heede told The Guardian newspaper, you could take all the decision-makers and CEOs of these companies and fit them on a couple Greyhound buses.
