I can't believe this guy is being so obtuse. You can see how the less developed nations are driving emission by the number of people because as the total emissions increase the per capita numbers are flattening out.Qatar burns off all the natural gas that comes up with the crude oil they pump ... small number of people, large number of oil wells ... ridiculous comparing the per capita output to Mali or Chad ...
Trinidad and Tobago is 2nd? ... that needs a citation ... or it's all faked ...
Using "per capita", we can easily show the United Kingdom is the single most violent country on the planet ... folks there are the most likely to be victims of a violent crime ... this is a trick of statistics in that we're including simple assault in Scotland ... two Scots get into a fist-fight and they're both victims of a violent crime ... take that away and indeed we find the UK as safe as anyplace ...

The per capita emission is lower for the poorer, less developed regions than it is for the richer, more developed regions which is why the per capita number flattened out. But as they develop the per capita emissions of the poorer, less developed regions will approach the per capita emissions of the richer more developed regions.
