ABSTRACT
The article focuses on global warming and the false claims of China on carbon reduction. China is stated to be the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world due to its huge population. It discusses the double standards followed by the Chinese in tackling climate change. China plans to lower its energy consumption per unit of Gross domestic product (GDP) by using coal-fired power plants as it burns much cheaper fuel.
