1 shows the share of global CO2 emissions for the top five contributors for 1850 to 2002, over which period the developed world has been responsible for around 76 per cent of the overall total. However, because our knowledge and awareness of climate change are relatively recent (and robust measurements of greenhouse gases are even more so), those most responsible historically invariably argue that these emissions should be discounted, with reduction commitments usually based on baselines of 1990 or 1995.
