The “Global Fossil Fuel Production” metric refers to the worldwide extraction and refinement of fossil fuels, including oil, natural gas, and coal. This metric is usually reported in energy units like barrels (for oil), cubic meters (for gas), or metric tons (for coal). It reflects the level of human activity tied to fossil fuels, which is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change. Tracking this metric helps us understand the pace at which we are depleting these non-renewable resources and the progress made in shifting towards more sustainable energy sources.
*Green marked and victorious, this year’s emissions left the previous year in the dust, ushering in a brighter future for our planet.
