Globally, in 2009, humankind emitted 30,303 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (mmtCO2: EIA, 2011a), of which emissions from Australia accounted for 418 mmtCO2, or a 1.38% (EIA, 2011a). The proportion of manmade CO2 emissions from Australia will decrease over the 21st century as the rapid demand for power in developing countries such as China and India rapidly outpaces the growth of Australia’s CO2 emissions (EIA, 2010).
