Figure 2.6 | Global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion and industry (FFI) in 2020 and the impact of COVID-19. Panel (a) depicts CO2-FFI emissions over the past five decades (GtCO2 yr –1). The single year declines in emissions following major economic and geopolitical events are shown, as well as the decline recorded in five different datasets for emissions in 2020 (COVID-19) compared to 2019 (no COVID-19). Panel (b) depicts the change in global daily carbon emissions (MtCO2 per day) in 2020 compared to 2019, showing the impact of COVID-19 lockdown policies. Source: Friedlingstein et al.
