The Netherlands' Environmental Assessment Bureau, MNP, says that China's carbon dioxide emissions exceeded those of the United States last year. It is the first time that China's emissions have surpassed those of the US. According to MNP figures, Chinese emissions rose by nine percent in 2006. US emissions rose by 1.4 percent over the same period. The Dutch research agency says the European Union managed to keep its 2006 emissions more or less level with 2005.
