Carbon Pollution At All Time High
Pollution set to get worst this year.
According to a new report by the Global Carbon Project, 38.2 billion tons of carbon pollution was pumped out in 2011.

The world’s top polluter, China, and India had the largest increases of 10 percent (to 10 billion tons) and 7 percent (to 2.5 billion tons) respectively. The only two of the world’s top polluters with lower emissions were the U.S., the second-largest polluter, and Germany.
At this rate, pollution is set to jump up another 2.6 by the end of 2012.
