The Big Global Warming Offenders

Who is making the least progress against climate change?

Here's a pretty cool graphic of countries around the world and how much they increased or decreased their greenhouse gas emissions from 2006 to 2007. Predictably, there are way more increasers than decreasers. But the top three that increased their emissions the most might surprise you.

Venezeula - 14.2 percent

United Arab Emirates - 10 percent

Australia - 9.2 percent

So Australia pumped out more emissions at a rate almost nine times that of the United States.

Chile had the biggest decrease—even more so than Germany and France.
