The Carbon Bubble was first identified by British think-tank, Carbon Tracker Initiative (CTI), in 2011. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has also developed numbers on Carbon Bubble and found similar results.

The diagram below shows the proportion of unburnable carbon associated with global fossil fuel reserves.




International Energy Agency found a higher percentage of the world's proven fossil fuel reseves can be burnt and still meet the 2 degree target. However, this discrepency appears to be because their confidence limits of reaching the 2 degree target were 50% compared to Carbon Tracker's confidence limits of 80%.
