Help World's top polluters
Advertisement
#1
The world's top 10 polluters, ranked by their absolute and per-capita greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, according to the International Energy Agency: Absolute emissions (carbon dioxide equivalent -- million tonnes per year, 2007 data)


Although, China officially overtook the US as the world's biggest CO2 emitter, research has shown that almost a third of Chinese carbon emissions are the result of producing goods for export.

In November 2009 China announced that it will reduce its carbon intensity -- the amount of carbon dioxide emitted for each unit of GDP -- 40 to 45 percent by 2020, compared with 2005 levels. However, given its high economic growth rate, China's emissions will continue to rise rapidly for at least a decade.

China - 6,027
United States - 5,769
Russia - 1,587
India - 1,324
Japan - 1,236
Germany - 798
Canada - 572
Britain - 523
South Korea - 488
Mexico - 437
