2011 onward, all public commission is definitely focusing on topic like green house affect, carbon footprint and expect a definite question from this area of Environmental science. I hope the concise display of energy consumption and carbon footprint of India and USA along with all major nation will help you writing answer effectively.
“Clearly, Western Nations have been the key driver of climate change so far. Between 1950 and 2000, the United States was responsible for 212 gigatons of carbon dioxide, whereas India was responsible for less than 10 percent as much. So it is clear that the richest people on the planet are appropriating more than their fair share of “environmental space.” Yet their lifestyle is increasingly what the rest of the world aspires to.” -State of the World 2008: Innovations for a Sustainable Economy, World Watch Institute
