  • Russia's emissions dropped rapidly in the early 90s due to an economic collapse with the fall of the USSR.
  • France's emissions dropped in the 70s-80s as it switched to nuclear power after the Arab oil embargo.
  • Britain's emissions dropped in the 80s-90s as it switched from coal to gas for economic reasons and because of the miners' strikes as well as to cut smog.
  • No countries have managed to cut emissions as a result of a deliberate policy to combat climate change.

There is also a strong argument that Western countries where emissions have fallen or grown slowly (especially Britain and the US) have really been exporting their emissions with their manufacturing industries to developing countries like China, where emissions have been rising fast.

What does it mean to cap greenhouse-gas emissions?

To cap means to stop, to put a cap on something. If an industry is producing greenhouse gas, then the government will legislate a cap, meaning it will only be allowed to produce this much greenhouse gas. "Capping greenhouse gas emissions" is the point at which greenhouse gas emissions stop. Each year the cap will be lowered so greenhouse gas emissions will start to decline.
