The latest in a series of studies has shown the UK has the world the most carbon dioxide emissions per person compared to countries such as Norway, Denmark and the US.
The latest research from Oxford University shows that the UK emits 2.7kg per person of CO2, the equivalent of 13.4 liters of gas.
But, according to the report, the UK’s carbon-intensity per person is below the average in Europe and Australia, and above the average of the EU and the United States.
However, the report does not take into account how CO2 emissions are distributed across different regions.
The UK, with more than half of the population living in the capital, London, is ranked second, followed by Denmark, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands.
However the report points out that the data from this report is incomplete and not fully comparable across countries.
The study also found that CO2 levels in the UK were significantly lower than the average across OECD countries.
While in many countries, the CO2 level is lower, the average is higher.
However this was not the case in the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom has a CO2-equivalent per person level of 1.36 kg, which is the second lowest of the OECD countries, just behind Norway.
Denmark, Finland and Iceland have the highest CO2 per person levels in OECD countries at 2.54 kg.
In Norway, the level is around 6.7 kg, followed closely by Denmark.
In Germany, the country with the second highest CO 2 per person in the world, the national level is 3.36kg, which also is lower than all the other OECD countries with the highest levels.
The report also found the UK was the country that has the highest average CO2 output per capita in the OECD, with a CO 2 emissions per capita of 4,000 tonnes.
In the UK, the government has set a target of reducing CO2 pollution to 10 per cent of the country’s total emissions by 2030.
The government has also pledged to invest $100bn in green technologies by 2020.
In 2018, the Government’s Climate Change Strategy recommended investing up to $3bn in new technology, such as green roofs, to reduce the carbon intensity of buildings, and invest $300m in green infrastructure projects in the city.
However according to a report by the Carbon Tracker Initiative, the investment in green technology was not enough to reduce CO2 by 40 per cent, and the amount of green infrastructure in the country is currently less than half the amount that is needed to reduce carbon intensity by 20 per cent.
However with more research being done on the climate implications of the UK leaving the EU, the future of green technology in the US and other EU countries remains uncertain.
The Carbon Tracker Institute has called on the government to invest in green energy to offset the impacts of the Brexit vote.
“It is important to remember that if the UK leaves the EU we will lose our right to use carbon-capture technology,” said the report.
The Climate Change Committee of the British House of Commons said the UK government should be able to negotiate a free trade agreement with the European Union, which would see it leave the EU.
“While the UK can still take advantage of the single market to negotiate free trade deals with other EU nations, the negotiations will need to be more transparent and open,” said Chair of the Climate Change Policy Committee David Ward.
“If the UK does not negotiate a trade deal with the EU then it will be unable to continue to use the CCS [carbon capture and storage] technology that it currently uses.”
According to a statement released by the Government, the Carbon Market Reform Act of 2019 will “help deliver a more open and efficient market for CO2 capture and sequestration” which will “support the UK to remain the world leader in CO2 reductions”.
