Why not do it per capita instead?

Climate Change doesn't care about per capita.

Climate change doesn't care about which country either.

I agree with the fact that China and India need to focus on their emissions, but it seems ridiculously convenient for someone from a western country to ask a couple billion people to reduce their emissions while they themselves will find every opportunity to reduce their own accountability.

FYI - A US per capita emission is almost 20 times more than that of India. https://www.nationmaster.com/country-info/stats/Environment/...

Our production of emissions is per capita. It's "human induced emission"

CC cares even less about how we structure our abitrary political systems.
