OECD: CO2 Emission, by Type of Fuel and Sector

Based on the data from OECD 2003, US has the highest CO2 emission per capita, followed by Canada and Australia. Portugal has the least CO2 emission, could be due to the fact most of their energy is produced not by oil, coal or natural gas, as shown in previous post. The same could be say on Iceland case (7.2 tonnes per capita) as well.

Electricity/heat generation and transportation are the major components for generating CO2. Switzerland and France have relatively higher contribution to CO2 emission from residential (27.1% and 20.7%). Whereas Australia (57.0%), Finland (53.9%) and Denmark (52.2%) have their CO2 emission derived from eletricity and heating sector.

    haha, not really, it is just that the current theme of the series of statistic is focused more on CO2, so that the reader can have an overall picture better, if there is any 😛
