As per the study conducted by Yale University on environment performance, Switzerland, Latvia and Norway came up as the strongest  performers and Iraq, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan emerged as the weakest performers, for the year 2012. EPI ranks countries based on various indicators, covering environment, human health, ecosystem vitality etc. As seen from the graph, ( EPI Vs GDP per capita), the top performers, come from European countries with high per capita income levels ( with the exception of Costa Rica, Rank 5, a middle income country, investing heavily into ecosystem based development). Developing countries and low income countries, on an average, fared poorly due to lack of basic infrastructure like access to safe drinking water, poor sanitation and environmental burden of disease. The study triggered various policy measures across the globe like “Going Green Initiative”  adopted by companies in India, investments in safe drinking water and modern sanitation techniques  taken up by some of the developing economies, and a check on carbon emissions by airline and other automobile industries.

And the second obvious thing is the immense growth of CO2 emissions, which increased x1000 times during 1753-2008 period (from 8 mln. metric tones of carbon to 8.7 billion metric tones). Nowadays China and United States are responsible for almost 40% of global CO2 emissions. But the great difference between them consists in per capita CO2 emissions. While in US this indicator has been stable at 5 metric tones per person since the beginning of 80th, per capita CO2 emissions in China are relatively low -...
