CO2 emissions of China, US, EU, India (58% of global emissions)

From 1990 to 2012, global GHG emissions have grown by almost 50% to 54 billion tonnes CO2e. GHG emissions in the EU fell by 12% in the same period. Falling emissions in Europe and the US are more than compensated by rapidly rising emissions in other parts of the world, notably in Asia.
China’s GHG emissions in 2012 were larger than those of the EU and US combined. China now emits more CO2 per person than the EU, but it is a major exporter of manufactured goods consumed in other parts of the world.
