China produces more greenhouse gas emissions than any other developed nation in the world combined, according to new data.
Despite climate change alarmists who claim the U.S. has a problem with greenhouse gas emissions, a new report from the Rhodium Group exposes China as the world’s overwhelming leader of greenhouse gas emissions.
Researchers said China was responsible for 27% of all greenhouse gas emissions in 2019, nearly three times the amount emitted by the United States and more than the entire developed world combined.
The U.S. contributed 11%, while India and the European Union were each over 6%.
Based on our newly updated estimates for 2019, global emissions reached 52 gigatons of CO2e in 2019, an 11.4% increase over the past decade. China alone contributed 27% of total global emissions, and the US—the 2nd highest emitter—contributed 11%. 1/5 pic.twitter.com/GXQbAg5Qew
