India, China responsible for rise in CO2 emission, blames report

London: In a relief to the industrialised nations, a Dutch environment report has blamed high growth in China and India for the rise in carbon emissions, saying they have ‘completely nullified’ the reductions achieved by rich nations.

The global CO2 emissions have remained constant in 2009 despite the economic crisis slowing down the growth trajectory of many countries, Netherlands Environment Assessment Agency (PBL) said in a report.

The agency, which had identified that China’s carbon emissions in 2006 had overshot that of the US, making it the world’s largest polluter, attributed the 2009 trend to an offset effect by China and India.

“Strong increases in CO2 emissions from fast-growing developing countries, such as China and India, have completely nullified CO2 emission reductions in the industrialised world,” the report said.
