Global CO2 Emissions Reach All Time High in 2010 After Recession Dip

According to the latest numbers from the International Energy Agency (IEA), Energy-related carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2010 were the highest in history. They had dipped a bit because of the global recession, but we've now surpassed the previous record from 2008. The truly scary thing is that: "In addition, the IEA has estimated that 80% of projected emissions from the power sector in 2020 are already locked in, as they will come from power plants that are currently in place or under construction today." This makes it much harder to limit temperature rising more than what is considered to be the 'safe' range.
