Equatorial Guinea is a relative newcomer to the global oil industry as oil was found there for the first time in 1996, Oil Price reminds.As well, some of today's "real" countries are so mind-boggingly tiny they're almost completely irrelevant.Indeed, in many cases their independent populations may actually be smaller than the populations of some of the world's un-sovereign colonial dependencies.The figure is up by 48% on 1992, when the first Rio summit took place.China - which only went into first place in 2006 - is racing ahead of the US, too.In addition to newly admitted Equatorial Guinea, OPEC’s members are Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela, while Indonesia is a former member.

• China now emits 48% more CO2 than the USA - and is responsible for a quarter of the world's emissions• The UK's emissions are down 8% on 1992, and it has moved from 7th to 10th place since 1992• In contrast, Iran has moved from 21st place to 8th place in 2010, overtaking the UK and Canada• Gibraltar has the highest per capita emissions in the world - 135.3 tonnes per person per year, compared to 8.5 tonnes in the UK and 6.3 tonnes in China There are other sources of emissions data too, if you want to compare - albeit not as up-to-date: • The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) gathers the data on world carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. • the International Energy Agency (IEA) has global carbon emissions data up to 2009 The full data from the EIA is below.
