Due to its acceptance of the United Nations Kyoto Protocols, China has released 1994 data on national gas emissions. While the emission rates were low relative to other developing countries, China ranks second internationally, behind the United States, on emission pollution. However, China’s emissions are assumed to be higher now than in 1994, and are predicted to increase as China develops and industrializes. Expected problems include severe climate changes and decreased agricultural productivity as China’s population increases. See the full story here.
