Do nations that smoke more cigarettes have higher carbon footprints than those that don’t?

    Most of Europe smokes far more than in the US and other developed nations, yet other factors offset this carbon footprint, e.g. alternative energy sources, efficient recycling programs, attention to sustainability, etc. China has more people smoking than any other country, even going sofar as encouraging people to smoke to help the economy. Carbon emissions are not strictly monitored there, either.

    In short, there isn’t really a causal relationship between incidence of smoking in the population and overall carbon emissions. Other factors contribute.
