Here’s another projection from the Energy Information Administration, a nonpolicy arm of the U.S. Department of Energy: Driven by increases in the transportation sector and the increased demand for electricity, the total carbon dioxide burden to the atmosphere will increase from the current 5,814 million metric tons per year to 6,320 million metric tons per year in the year 2035. Each person’s share is about 20 tons. printed on July 23, 2017
