This Is Why The U.S. Is Crazy to Sign on to Any Global Climate Agreement:
According to a report issued by the research and consulting firm Rhodium Group, China emits more greenhouse gasses than the rest of the developed world combined.
China is now responsible for 27 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions, far outpacing the U.S., which finished in second place with 11 percent.
President Xi Jinping has been conducting a global charm offensive on climate, offering to match emission reductions of China’s major competitors.
“We must be committed to multilateralism,” Xi said during brief remarks at the summit. “China looks forward to working with the international community, including the United States, to jointly advance global environmental governance.”
Go ahead, Uncle Sam. China will be right behind you. --->READ MORE HERE

China’s greenhouse gas emissions exceed rest of developed world combined: report
China’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2019 exceeded for the first time those of the US and other developed nations combined, according to a report published Thursday by an energy consulting group.
China’s 27 percent share of emissions surpassed the combined output of the US — the world’s second-largest greenhouse gas emitter at 11 percent — as well as all 27 European Union member states and India, which has the world’s third highest emissions rate at 6.6 percent, Rhodium Group’s analysis showed.
China, India and other developing nations have balked at efforts to reduce global emission rates, arguing that richer developed nations like the US and the EU should take action before them and help them foot the bill for the costs.
Chinese President Xi Jinping participated in President Biden’s virtual climate summit last month at the White House and said his country would reach peak emissions by 2030 and net zero emissions by mid-centrury. --->READ MORE HERE
