Are we emitting less green house gases than we used to?

    No. World emissions are on an upward trend. As the world population and standard of living grows, people require more direct energy use, more food, more water, and more products. All of these emit greenhouse gases in some form. The challenge of our future will be to reverse this growth entirely with a focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy generation. There have been some bright spots: the EU, for example, has had dropping emissions. And the recession that started last year has also resulted in lower emissions, but that is but a small dip in the overall upward trend.
