The U.S. ranks 1st in non-methane VOC emissions

According to the World Resources Institute, in 2000 (the most recent year available on their website) the United States emitted 19,042.50 metric tonnes of non-methane volatile organic compounds, which is enough to make the United States rank first in that category out of 217 ranked countries.

    From the chart, we are doing quite well. For example, our gross domestic product is about 3X that of China but our non methane VOC emissions are less than double theirs. Also, we still produce a fair amount of fossil fuels.
