The article reports on the views of BASF Chairman Jurgen Hambrecht about the United Nation's 2007 climate change report. Hambrecht said that despite its trend-setting role, Europe cannot save the global climate single-handedly. He cited that an average coal-fired power plant in China emits almost 40 percent more carbon dioxide compared with a European plant. He also claimed that the debate over carbon dioxide emissions has focused too much on industrial emissions.
