Top 10 CO2 emitting countries in 2000; Latin America and the Caribbean

Year: 2005 Author: UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Brazil is the world’s second largest emitter of carbon dioxide (CO2) from land use change. Only Indonesia emits more. In 2000 CO2 emissions from land use change in Brazil represented 18% of the world’s total emissions. The per capita emissions from land use change in Brazil are 6 times higher than the world average. Most of the land use change emissions in Brazil are caused by the massive logging of its rainforest. The per capita emissions of CO2 from burning fossil fuel in Mexico are similar to the world average. Most of the CO2 emissions in Mexico come from electricity production and transportation. The per capita emissions from burning fossil fuel in Brazil are half of the world average. Most of these emissions come from transportation and industry.
