Ukraine Fossil-Fuel CO2 Emissions
The Ukraine, with over 45 million people, is the world's 20th largest emitter of CO2 from fossil-fuel consumption and cement production with 88 million metric tons of carbon in 2008. Since becoming an independent republic, the Ukraine's fossil-fuel and cement-related CO2 emissions have plummeted 50% and population has declined from over 50 million people. Per capita emissions have dropped from 3.39 metric tons of carbon in 1992, fifth highest among Eastern European nations, to 1.92 metric tons of carbon in 2008.
