You're pulling India and other developing countries too high on your list. If you want to correctly measure the carbon footprint of each nation, you should do it on a per capita basis. If you do it that way, the true identity of the biggest offenders appear clearly.  [https://naukas.com/2019/12/11/cambio-climatico-o-cambio-global/](https://naukas.com/2019/12/11/cambio-climatico-o-cambio-global/) (use Google translate, it's totally worth it). Just a small sample, via a graphic from that same article: ![](https://naukas.com/fx/uploads/2019/12/cambio-global-3.jpg) This graphic shows the main part, leaving out the biggest polluters (those countries of the Arabic peninsula) and the lower part of the scale. Germany, for instance, has the biggest carbon powered electric centrals in Europe. And as you can see, India and China are far behind Canada, USA, Germany and Australia when you divide the total emissions over the total population. Again, translate that article I posted above. It's totally worth it.
