The International Energy Agency (IEA) published detailed analysis of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fuel combustion. The new data show that CO2 emissions related to the energy sector, which is the source of nearly two-thirds of human-generated greenhouse gases, rose 2.2% in 2013 to total 32.2 gigatonnes, compared with the 0.6% increase in 2012. Both years were below the average growth rate since 2000 of 2.5%. In absolute terms, global CO2 emissions increased by 0.7 gigatonne in 2013.
