Industrial Processes many industrial processes give off CO2 as a byproduct
Warming Temperatures due to an increased greenhouse gas effect
Transportation burns CO2 through the combustion of fossil fuels
Changes in Plant Growth due to increased respiration
Ocean Acidification from higher diffusion of CO2 into oceans
Deforestation fewer plants and trees that usually absorb CO2

DOC Emissions

Flight Emissions

The DOC's carbon emissions have been rising yearly since 2007.

This is largely due to an increase in trips that involve lengthly air travel.

In 2016 air travel made up

70% of the DOC's
