China’s Exports and Global CO2 Emissions

April 9, 2013
Tuesday 12 noon to 1:00 pm
Room 1636 School of Social Work Building

China has contributed significantly to the increase of global CO2 emissions in the past couple of decades. Part of China's emissions have been the result of increasing exports, or increasing consumption in countries. I will talk about how to measure such emissions embodied in trade and its implications on global climate governance.
