Climate change and our take on it:
Carbon dioxide CO2 is permanently emitted into our atmosphere by us, the world population, or industry (energy, agriculture). Unfortunately, CO2 emissions also depend directly on the economic development of the regions. For this reason, especially industrialized countries are the largest issuers. Often it is addressed to the emerging countries, that they contribute the most to climate change and that environmentally harmful production conditions are one of the reasons for this. It is regularly forgotte in this debate, that the consideration of CO2 emissions per capita is much fairer for the country comparison. The following figure shows the output per capita for different countries. It is striking that in this comparison, the US has the highest per capita CO2 emissions of more than 15tCO2/a. Closely followed by Germany and Norway with approx. 9-10t/CO2/. (https://ourworldindata.org/co2-and-other-greenhouse-gas-emissions).
