China wants developing countries to stop lecturing it on its increasing emissions. China’s foreign minister yesterday pointed out that the per capita emissions of greenhouses gases in China were less than a third of the average in developed countries. “China’s aggregate emission is large. This is because China has the largest population in the world, but China’s per capita emission level is very low,” Yang said. In addition, a large part of China’s emissions resulted from the manufacture of goods bought by consumers in western countries, he said.
