I still think we are essentially back to CO2 emission levels last seen in the 1990s.

Historical total emissions for the US can be found here:
http://cdiac.ornl.gov/trends/emis/usa.html
Constant GDP and population numbers are from here:
www.usgovernmentspending.com/us_real_gdp_history

One can then divide emissions by real GDP/capita

2012 est 30.9
1990 41.2
1980 49.9
1970 56.2
1960 49.8
1950 52.0
