One way in which emissions can be outsourced is by a country is by importing a lot of consumer products. This means that the emissions that are used to create a certain consumer product are left with a developing country that can produce the product for cheaper. This hides the carbon footprint of developed countries. For instance products the UK imported are responsible for 253 million tons of carbon emissions each year.
Well one more, “natural” way of outsourcing emissions could be the wind. For example, China creates mass amounts of pollution. The wind pushes those emission across the globe, literally. For example, China’s pollution can be seen crossing the Pacific Ocean and can even bee seen in the West Coast of America.
