[BBC] Tel que prévu, la Chine dépasse les US comme émetteur principal de CO2
China has already overtaken the US as the world’s « biggest polluter », a report to be published next month says.
The research suggests the country’s greenhouse gas emissions have been underestimated, and probably passed those of the US in 2006-2007.
The University of California team will report their work in the Journal of Environment Economics and Management.
They warn that unchecked future growth will dwarf any emissions cuts made by rich nations under the Kyoto Protocol.
