We keep here how there should been pros/cons, for/against arguments for the new carbon tax in Australia.
The is an argument about how Oz makes less than 2% of world carbon emmissions, but what about when you consider percent per head of population.
When you look at the emissions percentage per head of population, Australia is certainly punching well above their weight.
China - 23.33%
Australia - 1.32%
China - 1,339,724,852 - 19.23% of world population, ranked 1st in the world for poulation size
Australian - 22,726,397 - 0.33% of world population, ranked 51st in the world for population size.
Australia - 0.33% - 3/1000 of world population makes 1.32% of total emmissions
China - 19.23% nearly 1/5 of world population makes 23.33% of total emmissions
When you look at the maths
Australia has near 4 times more emmissions of China per head of population.
