These are global numbers. Equally relevant are per capita footprints – latest, 2006 data from Footprint Network:
United States 9.6
China 1.6 (and growing quickly)
India 0.8 (also growing)
Japan and the US have done a good job at educating the public. China, and even more so India have done a poor job. In both of these countries, one should consider helping with educational efforts, particularly as consumption, and the risk of associated environmental damage, are growing exponentially.
My main take away: people are a product of their environment. Change the environment, and you will get different behaviors. Make it hard for people to access resources as in India with water for instance, and they will use less. Give them the right infrastructure, as in recycling in Japan or the US, and they will follow.
