Daily greenhouse gas emissions. Illustration comparing the per capita daily greenhouse gas emissions per capita in four different nations. At right is a block representing the average American person's daily emission of greenhouse gases, measuring 66.58 kilograms, or 35.6 cubed metres. This is equivalent to the emissions of two average British people (at 29.86 kilograms, or 16 cubed metres, per capita per day), six average Chinese people (at 10.687 kilograms or 5.7 cubed metres, per capital per day) or twenty-seven average Bangladeshi people (left, at 2.47 kilograms, or 1.3 cubed metres, per capita per day). The emission of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, contributes to global warming.
