As carbon dioxide is the most important source of greenhouse gases today, its emission quantity has become a primary focus of governments, scholars, and the general public. From the perspective of industrial structure, the book mainly explores the features of carbon emissions in China.
The author thoroughly studies related theories and literature about industrial structure and climate change, and reviews different development history of developed countries and China. Based on historical data, this volume discusses the influence of inter-provincial industrial structure and income level on carbon emissions, and tries to estimate different industrial sectors' carbon emissions. It especially studies the case of Zhejiang Province, and analyses several factors which affect carbon emissions, such as energy intensity and economic output.
The book provides international readers rich information about the characteristics, patterns and drivers of China’s CO2 emissions, which will definitely help scholars and students better understand China's economy.
