CO2 Emissions by power plants worldwide...

A look at the study by CARMA(Carbon Monitoring for Action) would show you how much the so called "Developed Nations" are polluting the earth.

National power sector emissions (in tonnes of CO2):
US - 2,530 million
China - 2,430 million
Russia - 600 million
India - 529 million
Japan - 363 million
Germany - 323 million
Australia - 205 million
South Africa - 201 million
UK - 192 million
South Korea - 168 million

The most interesting fact is the per capita CO2 emission.
Australia - 10.0 tonnes
US - 8.2 tonnes
UK - 3.2 tonnes
China - 1.8 tonnes
India - 0.5 tonnes

You can dig deeper in the CARMA site for details of every power plant(50,000 power plants in their database). I was checking India and surprisingly, almost all of the high CO2 emiiting plants in India are loacted in Tamilnadu :(
