Japan’s current Climate Breakdown Pricing amounts to $20.35 per tons Fossil CO2 emitted since 2000. The Climate Debt grew from $1,952 per capita in 2015 to $3,734 in 2020. Updated Rankings of 165 countries are available in the menu “Climate Debt”.
The following diagrams expose the trends of Fossil CO2 Emissions, Climate Debt, GDP(ppp-$), Nuclear Power and Ecological Footprint without carbon.
The first diagram shows the Fossil CO2 Emissions per capita annually between 2000 and 2018. The green bars show the Free Emissions Level. The gap between the green and the black line is the calculation bases of the Climate Debt.
The second diagram shows Fossil CO2 Emissions in tons per capita in decades. Again, the green bars show the Free Emission Level. The grey bars are World Fossil CO2 Emissions average.
The third diagram shows the Climate Debt as ‘Share of global Climate Debt‘ in 2010, 2015 and 2020, of Japan, South Korea and China.
The fourth diagram shows the ‘per capita Climate Debt‘ trends between 2010 and 2020, with World average set at 1, of Japan, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Thailand and Thailand.
The next diagram shows per capita GDP(ppp-$) of the same six countries and World average.
In the calculation of Climate Debt, the unacceptable Nuclear Power is converted into CO2 Emissions as if the electric power was produced with oil. As a consequence, Nuclear Power must be phased out at the same rate as Fossil CO2 Emissions. Had Japan maintained the 2010-level of Nuclear Power, then the current per capita Climate Debt would have been $241 larger (6.5% increase).
The final diagram shows the relative per capita Ecological Footprint without the carbon footprint of Japan, South Korea and China, with an average country among 181 set at 100. Note that data is around three years prior to the specified years.
