File:Bubble diagram showing the share of global cumulative energy-related carbon dioxide emissions for major emitters between 1890-2007.svg


English: This bubble diagram shows the percentage share of global cumulative energy-related carbon dioxide emissions between 1890-2007. Major emitters are shown (percentage share in brackets): the United States (28%), the European Union (23%), Russia (11%), China (9%), other OECD countries (5%), Japan (4%), India (3%), and the rest of the world (18%). Data are from IEA (2009). For more information, see greenhouse gas.

The area and colouring of the circles is proportional to the share of emissions. The radius of the circles equals the square root of (area / π).
