Although emissions in North America and South and Central America fell by 2% and 2.4% in 2016, those in the Asia Pacific region increased by 0.9% as did those in the Middle East 1.6% and Africa 1.1%. This resulted in a net global increase of 0.1%. The emissions from the Asia Pacific region were almost equal to those of the rest of the world reflecting a dependency on coal. The US emissions at 1,925 MtCO2/year were less than those of China at 2,943 MtCO2/year. The United Kingdom had a target to reduce emissions from 247 MtCO2/year by 34% and has already exceeded this with levels of 112 MtCO2/year i.e. about 4% of those of China. Electricity production is responsible for 37% of the emissions in the USA compared to 34% in the United Kingdom. This reflects a continuing reliance on coal for electricity production in the USA.
