National contributions to climate change due to historical emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide since 1850 - Scientific Data

  2023-03-30 (or before) in Nature

Anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) have made significant contributions to global warming since the pre-industrial period and are therefore targeted in international climate policy.
