Overall trends in the inventory also demonstrate that the carbon intensity of California’s economy, the amount of carbon pollution per million dollars of GDP, is declining. Carbon intensity has dropped 23% from the peak in 2001, and declined an average of 1.9% tons per person in 2001 to 12.0 tons per person in 2013, a 14% decrease overall.
