Chinese CO2 emissions in perspective - Country intercomparison of CO2 emissions

Newsitem | 22-06-2007

The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (MNP) announced this week that according to preliminary estimates in 2006 China topped the list of CO2 emitting countries, surpassing the USA by an estimated 8%. To evaluate the implications of these rising emissions in China and other countries in the context of the climate policy issue, other aspects must be taken into account such as economic development and per capita emissions.
