PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre published a study last week finding that the average Chinese person’s carbon emissions are on par with the average European’s. The report concludes that China’s emissions increased 9 percent in 2011 to 7.2 MT per person, slightly less than the European average of 7.5 MT/person, but less than half of the American average of 17.3 MT/person.
