Which country has the highest carbon emissions per capita?
The graph above shows the carbon emissions from different countries, according to the data from Carbon Tracker, a climate change and energy monitoring project.
In 2018, the United States was the second highest emitting country, with 5.7 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
That was followed by China (3.4 tonnes), Russia (2.9 tonnes) and India (1.6 tonnes).
That was more than the OECD average of 1.1 tonnes.
Other countries also had higher emissions per person than the United Kingdom and Canada.
In terms of the world’s biggest economies, Germany had the second biggest emissions per head.
The US was the fourth largest emitter with 556 tonnes.
Australia was in the middle of the pack, with 7.6 kilograms of CO 2 equivalent per person.
The UK and France were the least polluting, with 1.3 and 1.2 tonnes of emissions per human, respectively.
Australia has been a net exporter of carbon since 2004, when it signed up to the Paris Agreement.
The country now has a national carbon tax of 6 per cent, which has been reduced to 2 per cent in 2019.
Carbon Tracker data The graph shows that Australia’s emissions are about four times higher than the US, which is the second largest carbon emitter, according in the latest Climate Analytics database.
Carbon emissions are calculated by comparing the emission of a particular energy source to the value of its price per tonne.
It is possible to reduce emissions by the amount of electricity a particular resource produces, but this is a process that requires energy users to use less energy.
Source: Carbon Tracker The United States, China and Russia have the lowest emissions per population in the world, according the data.
China is second, followed by the United Arab Emirates and India.
The United Kingdom is third, followed in last place by Japan.
The highest emissions per inhabitant were in France, Italy, Germany and Spain.
In 2019, the UK’s emissions per cap-and-trade system was the fifth highest in the developed world.
In comparison, in the EU, Belgium, Austria, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland all had lower emissions percapita.
Climate change Australia’s carbon emissions are rising at a faster rate than the rest of the developed economies, according data from the Climate Analytics project.
The data show that emissions per 100 Australians have increased by nearly 7 per cent over the last three decades.
Australia is currently the sixth largest emitter in the industrialized world, behind the US (25.9), Germany (22.6), the United Nations (21.4) and France (20.9).
Australia has not ratified the Paris Climate Agreement, but has pledged to reduce its emissions by up to 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions are predicted to continue to rise as demand for energy grows and cities become more energy efficient.
It will be interesting to see how Australia’s climate change policies change in the future.
The emissions data was first compiled by Carbon Tracker in 2007.
In 2020, the project was relaunched to provide a more complete snapshot of climate change.
It was relaunchned in January 2021.
The project is not a government funded initiative, but a joint venture between the Australian Climate Institute (ACI) and the Australian Centre for Policy Studies.
It aims to produce a global snapshot of the emissions associated with climate change, and is a project of the Centre for Climate Change Studies.
