The Potsdam Institute, Climate Analytics, and Ecofys sustainable energy lobby group released an analysis October 4 that concluded that China, the world’s largest GHG emitter, is likely to have higher-than-anticipated emissions going forward even though it is on pace to meet or surpass some of the climate-related pledges it made at last year’s U.N. climate summit in Mexico. The country is expected to fulfill its pledge to reduce its carbon emissions intensity by 40 to 45 percent by 2020, but due to higher than anticipated economic growth, overall emissions are likely to be higher as well.
