Who has the worst environmental performance?

This infographic from the The Happy Planet Index shows the ecological footprint per capita, a measure of the resources used per head in each country.

The footprint for each country is colour coded as ‘good’ (green), ‘middling’ (amber), ‘bad’ (red) or blood red for extremely high footprints.

As you can see the worst offenders are developed countries while the developing world tends to score green or amber.

The data is based on the Global Footprint Network’s Ecological Footprint Atlas, which provides figures for 2005.
