Outputs to air

Australia's per capita emission of greenhouse gases are among the highest in the world, reflecting the dominance of coal and motor cars in Australia's energy and transport sectors, respectively (see Table 25.4). The continued destruction of the ozone layer is also a significant environmental impact of Australian industrial systems both nationally and internationally (Brown and Singer 1996, pp.7-16).
