    The United States is one of the most wasteful countries on earth, the US uses the most resources per capita world wide. The US does not have the highest greenhouse gas emissions though, Australia currently is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. The countries that cause the most damage to the environment are the developing countries that do slash and burn agriculture. Slash and burn agriculture is responsible for over half of the worlds deforestation, and the burning aspect creates a lot of greenhouse gases, CO2 and the far worse soot/black carbon. Currently Indonesia is one of the most harmful countries on earth because they are slashing and burning down Borneo’s rain forests to create palm oil plantations. Brazil is also guilty of mass scale destruction to create palm plantations.
