Climate warning

Carbon emissions from China are growing faster now than before COVID-19 struck


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.
Under the Paris Agreement, China has pledged to ensure carbon emissions peak by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2060. Our analysis suggests China may struggle to reach these ambitious goals.

      CHina cannot afford to take steps back. They've done a lot on reducing pollution.

        China should work their best to reduce pollution

          It is vital for China to transit into clean energy to prevent this rise in carbon emissions

            It is unfortunate to see a spike in china's carbon emissions when the world is trying to cut down on carbon footprint

                The skies in China have never been as clear and the air as pure as during the Covid-19 lockdown.To keep it all time low,China must review and revise their policies governing environmental pollution and be vigilant to ensure that that is achieved.

                  I am confused. According to Bloomberg China's emission is starting to flat. Someone that can make sense of those conflicting news? I understand theconversation is making another assumption but why are they right and the others wrong? I think it maybe is too early to say if China is going in the right direction or not. I hope they are too negative on this article but it makes me worry that they could be right. This case really shows why we need transparent and trustworthy data that everyone can access for free! https://app.wedonthavetime.org/posts/2cc92d1f-7761-403b-9cb7-107c06561810?utm_source=url-copy&utm_medium=wdht-rn-app-share&utm_campaign=Rentzhog

                    @Rentzhog yes, it would be good to understand who is right about this. But I guess it can be complicated if they use different ways of calculating and so on
