The Age makes Australia the "world's worst polluter"
AUSTRALIA has the world's highest per capita carbon dioxide emissions from energy use, according to a British analysis.
The CO2 Energy Emissions Index, released by risk assessment company Maplecroft, found Australia's overwhelmingly coal-based electricity supply meant the average person emitted 20.58 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
Australia overtook the US - responsible for 19.78 tonnes per head - as the worst per capita emitter.
Canada was third, followed by the Netherlands and Saudi Arabia.
