Australians Worst Carbon Emitters Per Capita, U.S. Number Two

Internet (TGW) – Australians, per capita, are the world’s worst carbon dioxide emitters, polluting 5 times as much pollution as China.

The report was compiled by the online Carbon Monitoring for Action (CARMA) group, an online database with information on the emissions of every power plant in the world.

The U.S. came in second, and produces the most emissions per country.

Australians emit 10 tons of CO2 per person, while Americans emit 8. Chinese emit approximately 2 tons, and Indians around .5 tons.
