At UN COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow, the U.S. attempted to displace blame onto China for climate change, which was caused disproportionately by the advanced capitalist powers.
While the U.S. media often calls China the biggest carbon emitter, this tends to leave out both per-capita emissions and the fact that these same countries have outsourced so much of their manufacturing to China.
Rarely mentioned is how China is confronting the climate issue with far greater urgency than the U.S. government.
China Environment has discussed the deliberate distortion and omission of facts by the Western media in depth on several occasions. For thorough and detailed analyses of the facts, please see the following four articles:
- Why advanced countries must proportionately make by far the biggest cuts in carbon emissions – factual briefing
- China to peak CO2 emissions before 2030: West bears most responsibility for climate change
- Quantifying national responsibility for climate breakdown: an equality-based attribution approach for carbon dioxide emissions in excess of the planetary boundary
- Fact check: Is China the main climate change culprit?
