All the world's carbon emissions in one chart

What percentage of global fossil fuel emissions (since 1751) have occurred in my lifetime?
- If you're 15 years old, you've seen more than 30%
- If you're 30 years old, you've seen more than 50%
- If you're 85 years old, you've seen more than 90%

The dramatic shortening between the time periods taken for 400 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide to enter the atmosphere:
1st period: 217 years (1751 - 1967)
2nd period: 23 years (1968 - 1990)
3rd period: 16 years (1991 - 2006)
4th period: 11 years (2007 - 2018)
