    Somewhat.  The situation is complicated.  Last month, the Chinese government released a report outlining the potential impacts of climate change on the country.  Greenhouse emissions in China are not scheduled to make a serious decline until 2030.  However, it should be noted that China also has lots of people without access to food, clean drinking water, or shelter.  America, a country which is highly developed, has the relative luxury of taking on global problems since the basic necessities of our society are basically met.  

    It is more complicated to ask a country like China, with millions of unfed people, to halt economic growth while its citizens are starving.  For countries like China and India, global warming is not a problem they are economically equipped to handle at this point.
