EU double counting[edit]

How is it that EU has a listing and then underneath individual states are listed? Is this double counting or twice the polution? This data looks very dodgy indead.

Because math allowes for it. It's not like that column is called "% of emissions between these countries" - it's called "% of world emissions". Try to add them up and you'll get more than 100%. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.250.30.129 (talk) 12:35, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Why is there no cumulative EU / Eurozone emissions figure on this list???[edit]

Normally the Europas are only too happy to have their entries on "lists of countries" aren't they? GDP, trade and so on. The reason is that if you add up European emissions, it would easily exceed US emissions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.11.99.135 (talk) 17:02, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


Well someone would have to take the time to add them all up. Being that it's mostly EU-ers that care the most of the EU, they have that natural bias to do that grunt work, unless its in a negative light. But if you want to make that list, go right ahead.Woody60707 (talk) 03:01, 21 November 2010 (UTC)


"Why is there no cumulative EU" ---> there is now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.250.30.129 (talk) 12:37, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

The EU as itself should not even be there as it is not a _country_ by itself however as above is said US is. However if people want grouping it should done by all areas, middle east, africa, india surroundings and asia exluding china. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.114.147.59 (talk) 18:46, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Misleading[edit]

omitting the per capita factor makes this an extremely misleading article, in favour of the worst world polluters and nature destroyers, ie USA, CANADA and AUSTRALIA. this article is bad and also biased. mad , Greece — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.64.24.152 (talk) 13:28, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

It would be helpful if you would avoid political invective in your post. However, looking just at information content, you are right that the per-capita number would be a useful good addition. Geoffrey.landis (talk) 15:46, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Is there an error in Australia's ranking[edit]

I notice Australia is ranked as #7, however the emissions are 399,21 / 1.32% which are lower than 16th placed Canada. Error, or is this ranked per capita? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bprazner (talkcontribs) 02:10, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

2009 data[edit]

2009 data are already at UN site. I start updating at User:Jklamo/List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions. Feel free to help (but use template:In use), sorted data are on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AscXr7ehAHlydHBVNGFnUHlNTjlZWWJ6eTdORTFZLVE (note that there is decimal mark error). I also removed unnecessary source column (as all data are from CDIAC - although presented by UN), readded ranking column (not sure why was removed) and added columns per capita and per $1 GDP (PPP) (unfortunately 2009 data for per $1 GDP are currently erroneous). --Jklamo (talk) 19:45, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

I am updating with 2010 data. I thought this page used to show multiple years, and let people sort by the year they want. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.164.245.22 (talk) 21:03, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
