Australians' carbon footprint

Planet Ark reported.

"* Australia emits 28.1 tonnes of carbon per person, the highest per capita level in the developed world and five times more per person than China, due to use of coal for electricity.

The energy sector is the main source of carbon dioxide (86 percent), while agriculture is the main source of methane (59 percent). "
