Our results on this research paper propose that the forecasted path of Saudi Arabia’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has considerably been increased over the last years. The scale of the predicted increase in emissions out to 2018 is much higher than last years. Our estimate is based on the World Bank CO2 emission data. This records set contain significantly more information related to the trend of likely Saudi Arabia carbon dioxide (CO2) gas emissions which can be used by the government and all other stakeholders.
