Good news: 47 countries already have falling greenhouse gas emissions

Peak emissions is the term for when greenhouse gases stop going up and start going down. According to the recent study by the World Resources Institute,

WRI found that 49 countries have already reached their peak, which represents just over one-third of the globe’s total emissions. By 2030, that number is targeted to increase to 57 countries. That may not seem much of a jump, but these nations are the heavy emitters including the U.S., China, Russia, Japan and Brazil. When included in WRI’s assessment, that total will represent 60 percent of the world’s emissions.
All we have to do is speed it up.
