The Environment Dashboard incorporates a variety of environment indicators that show the latest trends in global temperatures, C02 emissions, and greenhouse gases. Indicators are provided at both the global and national levels. The data shows, for example, that while the U.S. has the highest overall level of C02 emissions of any nation in the world, the U.S. Virgin Islands has the highest C02 emissions per capita.
