This FACT indicates the total carbon emissions from energy production, a form of greenhouse gas, of each state in the financial year 2015-2016. The data is represented in millions of tonnes. This is a hot topic in Australia, and is high on the agenda for both federal and state governments, particularly since the introduction of the carbon tax in the federal government.
The state with the highest total carbon emissions is Victoria with 62.63 million tonnes in 2009. The state with the least was Tasmania at 0.11 million tonnes.
