If someone was farting a lot and telling a group who fart a lot less on an individual basis but obviously more as a group to cut the farts down would just be rude.Again, why is per capita more significant than total impact?
To use an analogy, lets take three rooms, all rooms are the same size, lets call them CHI, AUS & CAN.
The people in AUS & CAN like to fart alot, about 3 times as much as the folks in CHI.
There are 25 people in AUS, 35 people in CAN and 1,400 in CHI.
Which room would you rather be in?
Looking just at total output makes it someone else's problem. That isn't helpful
