Please re-check the link. I keep getting "the page cannot be displayed" messages in MSIE.

The link is working. I did get a flash plugin message when I first ran it on IE. Is your browser old?

Default How accurate are the data?

Temporary glitch, I guess. It just loaded without delay.

Watched it for a while. Interesting tidbit: Micronesia, Lesotho, and Somalia each have exactly the same 1000 tonne CO2 emission rate of 277.8 hours. That's too much of a coincidence for me to believe. Since I doubt now the accuracy of those three, I have doubts about the veracity of the other data presented there.
Not a question of the relative figures, nation compared to nation, but of the precision of the calculations.
<edit> I've now read further into how the data were derived. Some of the smaller nations' unavailable data were estimated based on data from neighboring countries with similar conditions. This would help explain the similarities.<end edit>
