@Zichi

Here is another fact related to CO2 ,

Oil Consumption by Country - USA ...934 gallons/per capita

Japan 481/per capita

India 51.4/per capita

Since all humans on this earth are entitled to clean air why only a handful of people have the right to pollute more than others

If all countries had their own Air space (Not in territorial terms) which coutries will have the most polluted air!

answer is evident

Posted in: Nations strike climate deal with coal compromise See in context

@Zichi

volume:

who creates the volume,the people their lifestyle,their consumption and wastage of natural resources ,eg plastic,

By per capita USA and Japan are the biggest polluters

they cannot just point out the volume without any relationship to the population of that country

india should never budge against these selfish demands from other much more polluting countries

Posted in: Nations strike climate deal with coal compromise See in context

@Zichi

see for yourself which countries are biggest polluters

divide the figure with population and you get the real answer

it should be based on size of the country and population
