Finnish carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions appear to have ballooned dangerously over the last year according to preliminary industry ministry figures. Over the twelve months to June they rose a staggering 19% to reach 69m tonnes, putting Finland 28% above its Kyoto protocol target of stabilising emissions at 1990 levels by 2008-12. As recently as the end of 2002 Finnish emissions were only 17% above the target (EED 14/03/02). An exceptionally cold winter and a surge in fossil fuel consumption are being blamed for the deterioration. See information note.
