      China may meet its Paris targets “by hollowing out low-value, energy-intensive manufacturing and offshoring those activities to emerging markets elsewhere in Asia with less stringent climate policy measures,” Guan said in a statement. In part, this offshoring of emissions is happenstance unconnected with climate policy, the new study finds.   China’s official climate change assessment is even more sobering. As many as of its largest cities now experience regular flooding and Shanghai, one of the most prone to serious flooding.

    China National Plan for Coping with Climate Change, released by the Chinese government in June , set the following objectives to be met by Policies . China is suspending its one-child policy. The Left’s expression of support for the original policy, because of climate politics, is morally monstrous.

In mid, hundreds of thousands of people were affected by floods in Bangladesh that were described as among the worst of recent country is low lying, and home to the Ganges river delta and many other smaller rivers.   In , China was the world's leading emitter of heat-trapping gases by a wide margin. Its policies for limiting emissions will have a significant impact on the global climate for decades to come.
