China Will Produce More Carbon Dioxide Than the USA

The International Energy Agency says China will pass the United States in 2009 as the biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming.

Although China has 1.4 billion people and the United States has 300 million people, the average U.S. citizen emits more carbon dioxide than the average Chinese citizen. The size of China and its economy is leading to the significant increase in carbon dioxide emissions.
