Why is it per country?
Imo it should be per capita ;D
Per capita is useful for gauging what individuals are producing per nation, but when we want to gauge which nations are producing what per nation is useful, as someone else raised in another point per capita China is something like #78 which is useful to know of course but when we are applying international treaties etc if say the island of Jersey produces a high proportion of greenhouse gases per capita but only a very tiny amount on the whole then focussing on Jersey isn’t going to change much on a global scale.
Would be great to have a similar presentation according to products, such as electricity, cement, glass steel etc.
