084 - Change in emissions, by sector

Some recent news - the Australian Government Department of Energy recently released the 'National Greenhouse Gas Inventory' - a big, all-encompassing update of exactly how much Australia is emitting into the Earth's atmosphere through the operation of our economy. There'a whole stack of data in the December 2016 update.

The chart below shows total change in emissions, by sector. Most interesting is electricity, which saw a period of decrease but has, in the past few years, started climbing back up again.
