This interactive chart shows the breakdown of global CO2 emissions by region.
We see that until well into the 20th century, global emissions were dominated by Europe and the United States. In 1900, more than 90% of emissions were produced in Europe or the US; even by 1950, they accounted for more than 85% of emissions each year.
But in recent decades this has changed significantly.
In the second half of the 20th century we see a significant rise in emissions in the rest of the world, particularly across Asia, and most notably, China.
The US and Europe now account for just under one-third of emissions.
