1 American = 10.8 Indians, 3.8 Chinese, 2.25 Europeans

June 16, 2008

Unfortunately, China accounts for most of the world’s growth in CO2 emissions.

However,

The United States still has a vast lead in carbon dioxide emissions per person. The average American is responsible for 19.4 tons. Average emissions per person in Russia are 11.8 tons; in the European Union, 8.6 tons; China, 5.1 tons; and India, 1.8 tons.

But we would expect China and India to do their best to catch up at least to the Europeans.
