A new study by the Rhodom Group found that China is the largest producer of combined greenhouse gases in the world.
A new study by the Rhodium Group found that China now has more greenhouse gas emissions than any other developed country in the world.
China’s six thermal-gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, increased in 2014 to 14.09 billion tons of CO2 equivalent, and the organization’s total resources for economic cooperation and development members increased by about 30 million tons. New York-based climate research group.
The huge amount of Chinese emissions underscores the importance of President Xi Jinping’s drive to reach the top in carbon emissions before 2030 and reach net-zero by 2060. The United States, the second largest emitter, contributed 11%, while India surpassed the European Union for the first time with a global total of..6%.
Nevertheless, China also has the largest population in the world, so its per capita emissions are much lower than in the United States, and historically OECD members are still the world’s biggest warmers, supplying four times as much greenhouse gases to the atmosphere as China since 1750.
“China’s history is relatively short compared to developed countries, many of which began more than a century ago,” the researchers said. “Current global warming is the result of emissions from both the recent and the distant past.”
