The most dangerous places in the world to be born
Two-thirds of the world’s population lives in countries that are on the “extreme end” of the carbon footprint spectrum, according to a report published Tuesday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
In the U.S., the world has an average carbon dioxide emission of 4.5 tons per capita, but the U-20 group said nearly 70 percent of the countries surveyed have emissions exceeding this limit.
That means about a third of the U!s population is exposed to the highest risk of global warming from CO2 emissions, the study found.
For the most part, the U !s are in the top 10 carbon emitters.
The report found that in the U.-20s, the Middle East and Africa are the most carbon-intense regions in the developed world, with emissions topping out at more than 8.6 tons per person per year.
The U.N. climate panel estimates that the world is already experiencing the worst effects of climate change.
More than half of the nations in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Negotiations, which sets global climate targets, do not meet their commitments, and some nations are moving ahead without them.
The group said it’s important to consider the economic consequences of climate-related economic changes in a country’s economy.
“A country’s ability to pay for climate adaptation depends on the extent to which it can afford to do so and the level of vulnerability it places on the economy,” the report said.
The most carbon intensive countries are the U., China, India, Russia and South Korea.
Other countries in the middle of the spectrum are Bangladesh, Nigeria, South Africa, Nepal, Kenya, Brazil and Colombia.
For more than a century, the world economy has grown rapidly thanks to the growth of industrialized nations and the expansion of industrial nations.
The U.K. is one of the fastest-growing economies in the EU.
