  • Arab countries are really high on the per capita list. Probably because they burn fossil fuels entirely for power supply.
  • Same with Singapore.
  • India - #3 on the total emissions - is way down on per-capita number, like due to the large population.
  • China is quite high on the per-capita list in spite of the large population, which indicates near first-world levels of energy consumption.
