Basic problems around climate

How much carbon dioxide do we per person actually emit?

Well, some basic data has been published here.

Depending on how you calculate it,  some say the average Swede emits 6 tons others say 8 tons.

To emit 8 tons, how much oil or coal do we have to burn?

Let’s make it easy for ourselves and try to imagine it in litres of gasoline, petrol.

One litre of petrol gives rise to 2,36 kg of carbon dioxide.

So how much (equivalent) petrol does the average Swede use per year?

Given that the most fuel efficient cars use 3.8 L/100 km, how far could you drive on the yearly petrol consumption?
