Oz Equals Land Of Toxic Emissions?

Having spoken to Alex, I decided to catch up on news that featured Australia this morning, and came across a BBC article entitled ‘Australians named worst emitters’. Rather than a study into the effect too many barbecues has on the gastric tract, it details just how bad Australia’s pollution is compared to other countries, when you factor in the size of each nation’s population. More specifically the CO2 emissions created by each state’s power stations. Although Americans and Chinese people obviously have the highest pollution levels, when you divide the output by the population, Australia turns out to be the most polluting nation on earth, when it comes to the production of electricity!
