The chart needs fixing to make it more visible!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:46, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes - this table has a big problem. You can't use it effectively as each country and its most recent data are not visible at the same time. Suggest that old data (older than 2000) be removed and that columns are made to appear such that most recent is left most column. I.E. reverse the year columns. As is now, the table is almost worthless. -- (talk) 18:44, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

If the older data is removed, it wouldn't be necessary to also reverse the columns, as they'd all be visible. A problem with removing all the older data is that it reduces the scope for comparing how a country's emissions have changed over time. Two possible alternative solutions are either to insert the countries again at the right hand side of the table, or to remove selective older years so that some temporal comparison into earlier times is retained (e.g. retain 1990 and 1995 from the 1990s, but remove the rest).
