    So you’re saying the countries with the largest populations also produce the most CO2? I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you!

    Here’s the thing… China, Russia, India, and the US are very large land masses. The number of tons they produce of CO2 may be worrying, but per population member and land area, it’s really not that much. I’d be much more concerned about Japan, German, and South Korea.

    Then again, CO2 is only one measure of pollution. There’s other forms, you know.

      No, this tells you that USA pollute half as much as China which has 5 times the US population. Or that India, which has 4 times the US population, pollutes 2 times less.

      You’re concerned about pollution in Japan? It’s a good thing. The population of Japan is half the US one and they pollute 5 times less.

      In Fact, The USA is 4% of the world population and is responsible for 25% of the total CO2 emissions, which is a good measure of pollution, among others.
