The graph below shows the average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per person in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy and Portugal between 1967 and 2007.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

The line graph compares the average amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) per person in the period of 40 years from 1967 to 2007 in five countries (United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy and Portugal)
Overall, there were significant changes in the average emissions in these five countries, with the highest tonnes of emission belonging to the United Kingdom. By contrast, Portugal had the lowest number in the same categories.
In 1967, Great Britain’s average carbon emissions were the highest, nearly 11 metric tonnes, but it managed to reduce steadily to about 8.8 metric tonnes in 2007. Sweden’s number fluctuated over the period shown, of about 8.8 metric tonnes in 1967, reaching the peak of over 10 metric tonnes in 1977, and finally decreased dramatically to nearly 5.5 in 2007.
By contrast, both Italy and Portugal’s average amounts saw increases. Each Italian produced about 4.4 metric tonnes of CO2 in 1967, and this number rose to 7.5 in 1997 and stayed constant in 2007. Portugal, which had the lowest data of carbon emissions in 1967, about 1.2 metric tonnes, rose sharply to 5.5 metric tonnes in 2007, the same amount as those of a Sweden’s person.

The line graph compares the average amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) per person in the period of 40 years from 1967 to 2007 in five countries: United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy and Portugal.

Overall, there were significant changes in the average emissions in these five countries, with the highest tonnes of emission belonging to the United Kingdom. By contrast, Portugal had the lowest number in the same categories.(1)

In 1967, Great Britain’s average carbon emissions were the highest, nearly 11 metric tonnes, but it managed to reduce steadily to about 8.8 metric tonnes in 2007. Sweden’s number fluctuated over the period shown, of about 8.8 metric tonnes in 1967, reaching the peak of over 10 metric tonnes in 1977, and finally it decreased dramatically to nearly 5.5 in 2007.

Portugal, which had the lowest data of carbon emissions in 1967, about 1.2 metric tonnes, rose sharply to 5.5 metric tonnes in 2007, the same amount as those of a Sweden’s person.(2)

Feedback

(1) Isn't there just one category?

(2) This sounds a bit strange.
