According to the new research, China is responsible for the 80% of the emission growth in the last 2 years. The research also predicts the world is on track to see temperatures rise by 4 to 6 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. In search of a new global solution, the issue is currently being addressed at United Nations climate change discussions in Doha.
