Greenhouse gas emissions as regards the sectors in the European Union countries
MetadataShow full item record
The hypothesis, that the emission of greenhouse gas in the whole EU, as well as in particular member countries is decreasing, was verified in this article. Due to the fact that emission depends on the number of inhabitants, it was calculated with regard to 1000 people and then the similarities of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU countries with various economic sectors were researched. Another hypothesis, concerning the fact that emission depends on the geographical position and historical conditions was verified. Czekanowski’s Method was used to make a division for homogeneous countries as regards the greenhouse gas emissions from various economic sectors. The analysis proved that the greenhouse gas emissions are decreasing in the whole EU, except for two countries where the emissions are rising. The conclusions were drawn after the division with the use of Czekanowski’s Method, the emission of greenhouse gas neither depends on geographical position, nor on historical conditions.
