How to read the figures:
Left-top: % Share of fuel input (TJ) by type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels) into 1A1a public electricity and heat production.
Left-bottom: Implied emission factor for each fuel above (tCO2 / TJ), taken from EEA (2009)
Right-top: Average efficiency of transformation in EU-27.
Numerator = 101109 Output from district heating plants + 101121 Output from public thermal power stations
Denominator = 101009 Input to district heating plants + 101021 Input to public thermal power stations
Right-bottom: % Share of CO2 emissions by fuel type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels into 1A1a public electricity and heat production)

Fly only for distances greater than 700 km. Otherwise take the train. A transatlantic flight produces almost half as much CO2 as an average person produces over a period of one year while meeting all his or her other needs, such as lighting, heating and car travel!
