The world's countries contribute different amounts of heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere. This table shows data compiled by the Department of Energy, which estimates CO2 emissions from all sources of fossil fuel burning and consumption. The top 20 countries with the highest CO2 emmisions are listed (data from 2006) and a [link http://www.ucsusa.org/global_warming/science_and_impacts/science/graph-showing-each-countrys.html 'graph of the top 20 CO2 emitters'] is also available.
