Top 10 countries with highest CO2 emissions

While the total emissions of a country like China or the United States may be high due to their large populations, emissions per capita provide insights into the average carbon footprint of individuals within a nation.

Gulf nations, particularly those in the Middle East, often rank high in CO2 emissions per capita. Countries like Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have substantial emissions driven by their oil and gas industries, high energy consumption, and energy-intensive lifestyles.

Top ten countries with highest CO2 emissions

Luxembourg, a small European country with a high standard of living and a well-developed industrial sector, often ranks among the top nations in per capita emissions. The country's small population and high levels of energy consumption contribute to this status.

Australia is another country after the United States with notable emissions per capita, primarily due to its reliance on coal for energy production and its expansive, energy-intensive industries. Despite efforts to shift towards renewable energy, the country's historical dependence on fossil fuels continues to contribute to high per capita emissions.

Canada, with its vast landmass and resource-intensive industries such as oil sands extraction, is also among the countries with higher CO2 emissions per capita. The energy sector, including the exploitation of unconventional oil reserves, has been a significant factor in Canada's carbon footprint.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
