Could China’s emissions decline?
Renewable energy in China is now expanding faster than coal and nuclear. According to a new report by the London School of Economics, China’s greenhouse gas emissions could peak and then begin to decline around 2025. If the research is correct, the decline would occur five years ahead of a promise made by China’s leader, Xi Jinping, in November 2014, as part of China’s historic climate accord with the US. AWWF analysis says that China could be 80% renewable by 2050.
