The data is flawed. The carbon emissions per country don't include 
import, so you can just import the most carbon-heavy product from China 
and you will see your country emissions falling and China's growing.

And the carbon emission of USA doesn't include Pentagon, while any other 
army is included in it's country numbers.

So we can' really compare such flawed data - these are just numbers for 
politicians but they have nothing in common with reality.

Regarding rising sea levels - I wonder why nobody mentioned submarine 
fiber landing stations. If something will be affected, it will be them.
