Abstract
Basing on the data of seven western countries from 1980 to 2006, this paper applies Logarithmic mean Divisia index method and time-series decomposition method to decompose carbon dioxide per capita emissions in the seven western countries. And it also analyzes the economic scale along with energy intensity and structure produce impact on the CO2 emissions. The results showed that the economic scale is the increasing factor of CO2 emissions, and the energy intensity and structure are decreasing factors of CO2 emissions. But these three factors show great differences in each country, and they display different energy policies of these countries.
