FACT CHECK: China’s Gaslighting on Greenhouse Gases.

World leaders, negotiators, climate experts and business leaders convene in Glasgow, Scotland, at the end of this month for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). Nations are called on to present action plans for drastically slashing greenhouse gases.

The goal is to keep global warming within a rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) and prevent catastrophic changes to the climate and global economy. COP26 has been billed as “the world's best, last chance to get runaway climate change under control.”

On October 14, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Zhao Lijian, was asked to comment about blame and pressure placed on developing economies, such as in China or India, for emissions.

Kishore Mahbubani, a public policy professor at the National University of Singapore, had written in The Strait Times that China can be called the largest greenhouse gas contributor only for recent emissions. Over history, the United States has been the biggest contributor.

Mahbubani argued that the United States and other developed countries bear a larger share of responsibility for climate change since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution centuries ago.

Zhao praised the idea.
