Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao attended the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen on December 18.  During the Conference, premier Wen said that China is important to the process of the development of climate change.   In order to address climate change, China has made unremitting efforts and positive contributions.  Premier Wen said that China was the first developing countries that implemented a “National Climate Change Program” and called for an energy-saving emission reduction in recent years.  As of the first half of this year, China’s energy consumption per unit of GDP has reduced by 13% compared with the figures in 2005.  This reduction of energy consumption is equivalent to cut 800 million tons of carbon dioxide. Based upon Premier Wen’s speech, China is the fastest-growing country in the world to practice new energy and renewable energy while experiencing the period of industrialization and urbanization.  In particular, China currently experiences a critical stage of development which coal-dominated energy creates difficulties to reduce its emissions.  However, Premier Wen further clarifies that China always treat climate change issues as one of the most serious tasks.

Premier Wen also stressed that the Chinese Government has established a target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.  This target is made according to China’s national conditions, which is responsible for the Chinese people and all the mankind.  No matter what results that are being reached at the end of the Copenhagen Conference, China will unswervingly achieve this national target in dealing with the climate change issues and even exceed this goal.

温家宝说,中国是最早制定实施《应对气候变化国家方案》的发展中国家,也是近年来节能减排力度最大的国家。截至今年上半年,中国单位国内生产总值能耗比2005年降低13%,相当于少排放8亿吨二氧化碳。

温家宝说,中国是全球新能源和可再生能源增长速度最快的国家。同时,中国也是世界人工造林面积最大的国家。

温家宝强调,中国正处于工业化、城镇化快速发展的关键阶段,能源结构以煤为主,降低排放存在特殊困难。但是,我们始终把应对气候变化作为重要战略任务。

温家宝:中国的减排目标不与任何国家挂钩
