    What do the countries with the highest emissions per capita have in common?
    – They’re mainly all developed countries
    – They’re mainly all in the northern hemisphere
    What do countries with the lowest emissions per capita have in common?
    – They’re all poorer/undeveloped countries
    – A significant number of countries are based in Africa

    Which regions are historically responsible for emitting greenhouse gases?
    – North America
    – Europe
    – China
    – Russia
    – Japan
    Why is this relevant?
    All these countries are developed and have been industrialised, historically they have emitted a lot of greenhouses gases into the atmosphere, however this may begin to subside as technology advances.

    Which world regions are most vulnerable to climate change?
    – Asia
    – Africa
    Which world regions are least vulnerable to climate change?
    – Europe
    – Americas
    – Russia

    Conclusion: The countries that emit the least greenhouse gases and cause least damage to the atmosphere are the ones that face the worst consequences from human-induced climate change.
