Some global perspective on income and climate:

The enormity of climate-change inequality has been laid bare by new research showing that the richest 1% of the world’s population produces 175 times as much CO2 per person as the bottom 10%.

The richest tenth of the world’s population produce half the CO2 emissions, while the poorest half generate just 10% of them.

You might read that and be inclined to ridicule that top 10%. But if you’re reading this chances are that you’re actually in the top 5%.
