Follow ➡️ @cnnclimate ➡️ China’s annual emissions exceeded those of all developed nations combined in 2019, the first time this has happened since national greenhouse gas emissions have been measured, according to a report from the Rhodium Group. Chinese President Xi Jinping has vowed to make his country carbon neutral by 2060, and climate policy is seen as a major area of cooperation — and even competition — between the United States and China. But the new report highlights how difficult reducing China’s impact on the climate could be. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. (📸: Kevin Frayer/Getty Image)

  1. Not surprised. I don’t understand why China isn’t forced to go on board with all of the other Wesrern countries in terms of zero net carbon emissions. They’re quite developed imo

  2. Almost everything we use all over the word is made in China hence, having highest annual emission is expected

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chinese population exceeds all developed nations combined, so obviously they’re going to have a large carbon emission even if they embrace renewable energy to reduce their emission per capita as much as possible.

  4. Considering the amount of things made there, makes sense. And also remember, a lot of the owners of those companies are outside China…

  5. So with all the draconian environmental measures the U.S. pushes, and all the jobs cut in the name of the “environment,” you’re saying it won’t make much difference?! And we’re just putting ourselves at a competitive disadvantage economically??

  6. Because all the manufacturing from developed countries is done in China on Chinese factories.
    We’re all in it together

  7. Wow glad they are part of the Paris climate accord. They really are doing a good job.
