The top four emitters in 2017, which covered 58 per cent of global emissions, were China (27 per cent), the United States (15 per cent), the European Union (10 per cent) and India (7 per cent), according to the projection by the Global Carbon Project.

The projection puts global carbon emission at all-time high this year.

The World Meteorological Organization said last week that 2018 was "on course to be the fourth warmest year on record" and pointed out that the 20 warmest years on record have all occurred within the past 22 years.

World carbon dioxide emissions are estimated to have risen 2.7 percent from 2017 to 2018, according to three studies released Wednesday from the Global Carbon Project, an worldwide scientific collaboration of academics, governments and industry that tracks greenhouse gas emissions.

Lead researcher Professor Corinne Le Quere, from the University of East Anglia, said: "We are seeing a strong growth of global carbon dioxide emissions once again. His administration is, therefore, emerging as the most destructive force to achieve a meaningful global collaboration to fight climate change", said Chandra Bhushan, deputy director general of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE).

Rapid deployment of solar and wind power, along with gains in energy efficiency, have been outpaced by growth in demand for freight, personal transport, shipping, and aviation, the research showed.

Speaking during the United Nations' COP24 climate change conference in the southern Polish city of Katowice, Mateusz Morawiecki said: "I can proudly and without hesitation say that Poland is one of the leaders when it comes to measures undertaken to stop global warming". Most of that growth can be traced to an exceptionally hot summer and cold winter.

Curbing carbon emissions is the single most important pledge of the historic 2015 agreement, which aims to combat climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century to between 1.5 degrees and 2 degrees Celsius.

Use of coal - the biggest carbon emitter - is rising. "Now we're seeing a return to a trajectory of increased emissions, that's largely driven by Asia essentially". "If you don't think you need to take action for the sake of climate change, make sure when you think about the planet you incorporate a couple of lungs, a brain and a heart". Its data on 2017 emission shows China as the top emitter followed by the US, European Union (28 nations) and India.

This year's growth in emissions has been attributed to the strong economic growth.
