The United States is the most carbon-dense country in the world by far. This isn’t a good thing especially if you are a person who loves to think about the environmental impact of your everyday actions.
In 2009, the U.S. was the second-most carbon-dense country in the world. The second-highest country was China, which had a per capita CO2 emissions of roughly 5.5 tons per person per year. However, by 2020, China will have a per capita CO2 emissions of 26.7 tons per person per year.
I think it’s important to have a good understanding of what these numbers mean for your personal carbon footprint so that you can make the most informed choices about your energy use and lifestyle.
As a country, the United States has seen a massive increase in its greenhouse gas emissions over the past several years. With the U.S. now leading the world in carbon emissions per capita, it’s important to know that it’s not too early to think about doing something about this situation. The first step is to start taking immediate steps to reduce your carbon footprint. One way to do this is by switching to 100% renewable energy.
It’s not just the United States that’s been hit. Germany, France, and Canada have all seen their per-capita emissions increase in the past year, although Canada’s emissions are still lower than the United States. The good news is that these increases are less than those in the United States. In fact, per-capita emissions have actually decreased recently, something that’s good news.
In general, per-capita emissions tend to rise as a country’s population grows. In countries like the United States, its more a function of the number of people than anything else. However, in Europe, per-capita emissions have increased for a number of countries due to increasing population. The good news is that the trend now seems to be reversing, and the United States is on the top of the list of countries where emissions are now increasing rather than decreasing.
This is good news, but it raises the question of whether it’s something we’ll have to change. The good news is that per-capita emissions are now on the decline everywhere. The bad news is that this is likely to carry on for years.
This is the good news, though. There is a good reason per-capita emissions have been rising for years now. As a country’s population increases, the amount of greenhouse gases being emitted increases. This is because every new person being born is contributing to the global warming effect of the planet. This is good news, but it only takes a little more than a minute to sink in.
In terms of carbon dioxide, the average American uses about a ton of coal a year, and it costs about $100 per ton. If we add in the carbon emissions that all of those coal plants and power plants are creating, it comes to something like $500 per year for the average American. That is a lot of money, and it is a lot of money for the entire country to be burning. Even if we did have the money to spend, the emissions aren’t a lot.
If you take a look at the global map of greenhouse gas emissions, you will see that the United States is only second to the European Union, which has a per capita carbon dioxide emission of about 1.5 tons a year. That makes the United States the second largest emitter in the world.
