China is pumping out carbon emissions as if COVID never happened

Carbon emissions from China are growing faster now than before COVID-19 struck, data show, dashing hopes the pandemic may have put the world's most polluting nation on a new emissions trajectory. We compared emissions in China over the first four months of 2019—before the pandemic—and 2023. Emissions rose 10% between the two periods, despite the pandemic and China's faltering economic recovery. Power generation and industry are driving the increase.
