The graph below shows CO2 emissions for different forms of transport in the European Union. The Pie Chart shows the percentage of European Union funds being spent on different forms of transport.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
Information regarding the proportion of CO2 emissions from various transportation modes in the European Union and the share of allocation of funds on different transportation forms is depicted in the given charts.
Overall, it is clear that the expulsion of CO2 is much higher by an air traveller than a passenger who uses road, rail or waterway. It is also clear that a much greater proportion of money is spent on roads and railways than other transportation modes.
As per the bar chart, air travellers pollute the atmosphere the most. An average air traveller emits about 370 grams of CO2 per kilometre. This is almost 240 grams more than a person uses a passenger car. The average share of CO2 emissions from other transportation modes: buses, coaches, maritime and railways hovers around 50 grams per passenger.
Turning to the pie-chart, the lion’s share of fund allocation goes to road construction and maintenance. This just crosses 50% of the total amount spent, and is 21% more than the amount spent on railways (31%). A tenth of the total fund allocation goes to public transport, whereas the remaining share accounts for just 7%.
