Central Europe Activ

We Europeans tend to believe that we are leading the fight against carbon emissions and we are too easily pointing the fingers at the United States. I think that the great visualization tool of Worldmapper, a world map that is distorted proportionally to carbon emissions should make us think. And the EU emission is still rising: we are as much part of the problem as the United States, China, India and Russia is.

Carbon-dioxide emission cartogram by Worldmapper.

Worldmapper has a great map on emission increasers and greenhouse gases in total (including methane and nitrous oxide but excluding fluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride).
