China Passing U.S. as No. 1 Polluter

Tuesday, Apr. 24, 2007 By AP (SHANGHAI) — China will pass the United States as the world's biggest source of greenhouse gasses this year, an official with the International Energy Agency said.

China had been forecast to surpass the U.S. in 2010, but its sizzling economic growth has pushed the date forward, the IEA's chief economist, Fatih Birol, said in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal.

"In the past couple of months, economic growth and related coal consumption has grown at such an unexpected rate," Birol was quoted as saying. China's rising emissions will effectively cancel out attempts by other countries to reduce their own, he said.

Those comments follow the weekend release of a Chinese government report detailing the costs of climate change but asserting that the country should focus on development before cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

Higher than average temperatures meant spreading deserts, worsening droughts, shrinking glaciers and increased spread of diseases, said the report, compiled by more than a dozen government bodies. It said emission limits were unfair and would constrain China's current energy and manufacturing industries.

China is a signatory to the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse gasses, but is exempt from its restrictions because it is a developing country.

The Paris-based IEA advises developed country on energy policy.

I always thought Brazil flys well below the environmental radar.

They are the world leader in boifuels, something like 60% of all fuel used is ethanol based, (or will shortly be), but in order to do that. they need to cut down the rain forest and plant sugar beats….ummmm, ok, so in order to save the patient,, you need to kill him first??
