It's true that natural sources are huge, but they are balanced by natural sinks - human contributions are tipping this balance

List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of sovereign states and territories by carbon dioxide emissions due to certain forms of human activity. The data presented below corresponds to emissions in 2008. The data was collected by the United States Department of Energy's Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) for the United Nations. The data only considers carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and cement manufacture, but not emissions from land use, land-use change and forestry. The top 10 countries in the world emit 67.07% of the world total.[1][2][3][4][5] Other powerful, more potent greenhouse gases are not included in this data, including methane.

Some dependencies and territories whose independence has not been generally recognized are also included as they are in the source data. Certain entities are mentioned here for purposes of comparison. These are indicated in italics and are not counted in the ordering of sovereign states.

CDIAC released preliminary 2009 estimates for a limited number of countries, also International Energy Agency released its own estimates, two data sets calculated using slightly different methods that listed about 140 countries. Following table is listing annual CO2 emissions estimates (in thousands of CO2 metric tonnes) from these estimates for top emitting entities.
