Venezuela is the nation with a high CO2 emission in Latin America according to the latest data from the World Bank (WB). According to the Venezuelan researcher Julio Centeno to Últimas Noticias, the State subsidy and low fuel prices mean that the waste of fossil energy increases the generation of CO2.
Those emissions reveal how many tons of greenhouse gas are invested for every $ 1,000 of gross domestic product (GDP) in a year. Figures from the World Bank show that Venezuela ranks first in Latin America in its indicators, emitting one ton of CO2 for every thousand dollars of GDP. This value is 3.3 times higher than Argentina’s, four times higher than Brazil’s, five times higher than Colombia’s and more than two times higher than Mexico’s. Furthermore, per capita emissions are also the highest, being almost half that of emissions in Germany.
