The U.S. is clearly the world’s worst per capita major carbon emitter not only in historic terms, which is relatively well known, but also in current terms. The U.S. attack on China and India, the first of which has per capita carbon emissions 46% of the U.S. and the second of which has per capita emissions 12% of the U.S., is therefore a grotesque frameup.
The West Asian and North African region is disproportionately feeling the impacts of climate change, but the ongoing imperialist-led wars make it nearly impossible for these countries to implement mitigation measures.
The starting point in the fight against a climate change should be that it is the advanced countries that must make by far the biggest proportional reductions in CO2 emissions.
