Development and Environment Data

One of these was released last year and the other earlier this year but, I guess, better late than never!

Free Data from the World Bank
The World Bank now offers free access to more than 2,000 financial, business, health, economic and human development statistics that had mostly been previously available only to paying subscribers. The data can be accessed via the data catalog. This includes the World Development Indicators previously only available to subscribers.

This dataset provides both gridded and annual by country data for 1970-2005 for most greenhouse gases and aerosols. I expect to see some EKC studies for esoteric pollutants :)
