This is a picture of the carbon emitted by China that turns out to be accounted for by consumption in other countries. In other words, what has happened is that countries in Europe and North America, for instance, have managed to shrink their carbon footprint by getting China to do a great deal of emitting.

Very useful. I assume california’s record low emissions is mostly outsourcing.
