Global indicator updates: Land-Ocean Temperature, Sea Level, CO2 in the Atmosphere and Population

Global indicator updates: Land-Ocean Temperature, Sea Level, CO2 in the Atmosphere and Population

The four global Indicators: Land-Ocean Temperature, Sea Level, CO2 in the Atmosphere and Population have been updated in ‘ClimatePositions (Excel)‘. Combined, the updates resulted in significant increases in national Climate Debts. Land-Ocean Temperature and Sea level due to adjusting the national GDP-Factor, while CO2 in the Atmosphere and Population due to adjusting the global Fossil CO2 Emission Target.

Diagrams with the four global Indicators are shown below [diagram were replaced 15-02-2018].

Updated data and diagrams of all ‘Indicators‘ and all countries in ClimatePositions are available in the menu ‘Calculations (Excel)‘.
Data source on global Land-Air Temperature: NOAA National Climatic Data Center (links in the menu Calculations / Sources & Links).
Data on global Sea Level: University of Colorado (links in the menu “Calculations”).
Sources on CO2 in the atmosphere: NOAA Earth System Researth Laboratory (links in the menu “Calculations”).
Data on global Population is from Worldbank (links in the menu “Calculations”).
