Just seems like moving the goal posts. The average footprint of euro countries may be higher, but these are countries with populations that are a fraction of China. China still has an addiction to using coal for energy. Total pollution per country is imo the most important factor as how much a society breeds is definitely part of the problem. Each life consists of several decades of consuming resources.
So ultimately, Europe is actually more environmentally conscious for the simple reason they don’t breed like rabbits ;)
Not sure where you get you antiquated information from but neither is China. China's population growth is 0.6%, Europe 0.3%, USA 0.7%
South Sudan is the highest atm with 3.83% (Africa is where the current population 'boom' is)
The average European consumes 4000 kwh electricity a year, same as for China.
The average European consumes 80kg of meat a year, the average Chinese 55kg.
Btw, coal isn't necessarily worse than other fossil fuels, plus they need all that power to make our toys...
Europe a fraction of China, there's 741 million people in Europe!
