Colombia – per capita Fossil CO2 Emissions (zero Climate Debt)
Although Colombia’s accumulated Climate Debt is zero, the country is the world’s 45th largest emitter of Fossil CO2.
The following diagrams expose the trends of Fossil CO2 Emissions, GDP(ppp-$), Forest Cover, Primary Forest and Environmental Performance.
India – per capita Fossil CO2 Emissions (zero Climate Debt)
In the calculation of Climate Debt, India is especially interesting because it has zero Climate Debt despite the fact that the country is the 3rd largest emitter of Fossil CO2. As it appears, India will enter the next 20-year period in ClimatePositions (2020-2039) without any Fossil CO2 Emissions exceeded. The final calculation will be made, when data on Fossil CO2 Emissions 2019 are released.
The following diagrams expose the trends of Fossil CO2 Emissions, GDP(ppp-$), Ecological Footprint without carbon, Forest Cover and Primary Forest.
United States – per capita Fossil CO2 Emissions and Climate Debt
The current Climate Breakdown Pricing of the United States amounts to $30.82 per tons Fossil CO2 emitted since 2000. The Climate Debt grew from $5,497 per capita in 2015 to $10,718 in 2020. Updated Rankings of 165 countries are available in the menu “Climate Debt”.
The following diagrams expose the trends of Fossil CO2 Emissions, Climate Debt, GDP(ppp-$) and Nuclear Power.
Share of global Climate Debt rank 88th, 89th and 90th: Papua New Guinea, Guatemala, Tonga (combined responsible for 0.001% of Climate Debt and 0.078% of Fossil CO2 Emissions 2016)
The diagram below shows ‘Share of global Climate Debt‘ in 2010, 2015 and 2017 of Papua New Guinea, Guatemala and Tonga (ranked 88th, 89th and 90th). All three countries had zero Climate Debt in 2010, Tonga even in 2015.
Share of global Climate Debt rank 85th, 86th, and 87th: Honduras, Guyana and Bolivia (combined responsible for 0.006% of Climate Debt and 0.090% of Fossil CO2 Emissions 2016)
The diagram below shows ‘Share of global Climate Debt‘ in 2010, 2015 and 2017 of Honduras, Guyana and Bolivia (ranked 85th, 86th, and 87th). The share of Honduras decreased significantly during the period. The global Climate Debt accumulated since 2000 is $7.2 Trillion.
Climate performance of Mexico and neighboring countries
The Mexican CO2 Emissions per capita over time are similar to the world trend (see the diagram) and Mexico is the world’s 12th largest CO2 emitter. Together with the neighboring countries Mexico represent the full range of Climate Contributions (climate debt) worldwide. The following examines the statistics of Mexico in comparison with United States, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
Guatemala is close to being Contribution Free
Guatemala was the 82nd worst performing country out of 145 full data countries in ClimatePositions 2010. The national Contribution (climate debt) was $4 per capita, but in the latest calculation this amount is cut in half thanks to decreasing CO2 Emissions (carbon dioxide) in 2011 (see the front diagram). In a few months Guatemala may be Contribution Free.
