Who Uses the Most Energy per Capita?

Yep, you're absolutely right! It's Qatar!

The Economist tells us what should stand out here:
...what should stand out is that most of the world's population is squished into that broad bottom tier, which includes emerging markets and undeveloped countries. Really, something like 85% of the people living on this planet consume below the world's average energy use. Either those people need to quit aspiring to developed nation lifestyles, or the world needs to make output far less energy-intensive, or we should all prepare ourselves for a nasty time of things, in geopolitical and environmental terms, as emerging markets continue to develop economically.
Actually, it was Qatar that stood out for me at first, but that's still a good point. We better get working on that smart grid because China and India aren't slowing down.
