China Overtakes US As World’s Biggest Air Polluter

Posted by Author on June 19, 2007

AFP, published on Independent Online, South Africa, June 19 2007-

China for the first time spewed out more carbon-dioxide emissions last year than the United States, a Dutch government research body said on Tuesday.

“China’s 2006 carbon dioxide emissions surpassed those of the USA by eight percent,” the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (MNP) said.

In 2005 US emissions were up two percent compared to China. The MNP said the figures were based on its own preliminary estimates derived from recent energy and cement production data.

Industrial processes and the burning of fossil fuels – oil, gas and coal – are the main causes of carbon-dioxide emissions. Of the industrial processes, cement production is one of the principal sources of greenhouse gas, the MNP said. In 2006 China had a 44 percent share in global cement production, it added.

According to the MNP figures, China’s emissions increased by nine percent in 2006 compared to its 2005 output. In the United States emissions rose 1.4 percent from 2005 to 2006. – AFP
