Scars of war in emission data


For instance, Δ2006 stands for the interannual difference in emission rate (%) between 2006 and the previous year.

"Those who lie about the past wars, literally initiate the future conflicts". According to the the Institute of Economics and Peace, the number of armed conflicts has increased from from 41 to 52 in the period between 2014 and 2015 year. Nearly 60 million people were forcibly displaced due to war conflicts since 1950. The term "hot spot of tension" is on the front burner as 90% of the last decade's civil wars have occurred in the countries that had already suffered a civil war in the last 30 years. On top of that, the fraction of fatalities among non-combatants is unprecedented and this fraction is increasing every year with every new conflict ignited. This is a dreadful fact to accept sine many of us have been grown being convinced that the sky upon us is peaceful as it has never been. Scars of the wars can be found everywhere; even in the emission data records. These scars are barely visible in the line-type plots of constantly growing national emissions, but they become extremely visible when inter-annual change in emissions is plotted.
