Text description of figure

Chart 11 shows the contribution to uncertainty each sector makes by way of a horizontal bar chart. Projections and estimates of carbon dioxide removals by forest sinks are the largest source of uncertainty with an absolute uncertainty range of 54.1 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent. Absolute uncertainty by sector was projected as follows (million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent):

Sector Million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent
Removals via forest sinks 54.1
Agriculture 41.9
Deforestation 32.2
Energy (excluding transport) 18.4
Transport 12.6
Industrial processes 0.8
Waste 0.3
Solvents and other product use <0.1
