Global Carbon “Footprint” by Nation | The Big Picture

Global Carbon “Footprint” by Nation | The Big Picture:

Just in case you had not seen this really cool chart from a year ago...

Here's the BIG FOOT, big picture of emissions by country. Note that China has now outpaced the US based on pretty much any measure of emissions you might want to consider.

They now burn half the worlds coal, adding on a new coal power plant every few days (about 5 last I heard). India is growing emissions with a vengeance as well.

Within 10 years, there will have to be another foot, or something, simply to show the BRIC countries. Well, maybe not the "B"razil in the BRIC countries but Russia, definitely.
