“It is important to note that China is following in the footstep of energy-efficient Europe in the graph. China's CO2 intensity today is about the same as that of Europe in 1980. And China furthermore appears able to cut its CO2 intensity at the same rate as Europe has done over the last 40 years. This is impressive, given the fact that China produces much of the industrial goods consumed in Europe and in the US. In sum, it appears to me that China has been able to bring forth enough public finance to pay for a respectable reduction in gas emissions, and appear ready to follow the progressive track of Europe in its pursuit of the dual carbon goal,” said Jorgen Randers, a Norwegian climate scientist and Professor Emeritus of Climate Strategy at Department of Law and Governance of BI Norwegian Business School, on Understanding China·Greater Bay Area Dialogue.
The “Understanding China·Greater Bay Area Dialogue” is in full swing in Guangzhou, south China’s Guangdong province, from April 18 to 20, with the theme of Chinese Modernization and New Opportunities for the World. GDToday is one of the media sponsors of this conference.
