Information from the world data bank about CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels. (2011-2014) The measurement is Metric Tons per Capita (per person) Here I have split the countries into the Northern and Southern hemisphere, I wanted to see if the Northern or Southern hemisphere was more responsible for higher CO2 emissions than the other.

I also split the countries into groups of :

0-5 Metric Tonnes per Capita (126 countries)

5-10 Metric Tonnes per Capita (42 countries)

10-15 Metric Tonnes per Capita (15 Countries)

15-20 Metric Tonnes per Capita (4 Countries)

20+ Metric Tonnes per Capita (7 Counties)

12 Countries were not defined and the information about CO2 emissions was not available.

The Northern hemisphere definitely had higher CO2 emissions as I had anticipated.
