The one who is lying is you.
Germany roughly 7tons per capita, USA roughly 18tons, that is close to a factor of 3, not 2.
Per the European Edgar DB, Figure 2.4,
American per capita in 2012, was 16.4. In Germany, it was just under 10. That is a factor of 1.5, and no where NEAR 3x.
Chinas rate is still on the lower edge of European countries like Denmark or Germany.
in 2012, China's per capita was at ~7.2, while Europe's was at ~7.3. That was two years ago.
Since that time, Chinas CO2 emissions have risen more than 20%. China now accounts for more than 1/3 of the global emissions, with less than 1/6 of the world population.
And all of that is based on numbers that Chinese gov. has given up. OCO2 is about to shock the world and liars like yourself.
Secondly, over the last 20 years, Europe's rate has not changed much
That is complete nonsense. Europes footprint dropped by 30%.
In POF, america is the only major nation to have made major cuts
That is nonsense, too.
Since 1997 you dropped perhaps in 5% ... if at all.
And while China continues to grow their emissions by 3-5% a year, and Europe is actually growing as well, only Americas continues to fall.
wow three lies in one sentence, you are good at that.
Per edgar, EU27 was at 4.12 in 1992. In 2012, you were at 3.74. That is a 10% drop.
Now, in the same time span, we increased heavily due to W (from 5->5.91), and then due to our cheap nat gas, we dropped BELOW 5, though, edgar shows America at 5.19 in 2012. However, other groups show that 2013 was a major drop for America, pretty much a fixed level for Europe (esp. due to Germany's killing of their nukes and their massive build-out of coal plants), and a REAL MASSIVE increase for China's emissions.
