Abstract
This paper attempts to analyze the factors affecting the carbon emissions in China, and the central, eastern and western regions of this country respectively, by building models of carbon emission affecting factors and using inter-provincial panel data from 2005 to 2009. This research shows that the carbon emissions and GDP per capita have a relationship of an inverted U-shaped environmental Kuznets curve in China and the eastern region of the country. In reference to the relationship between the unit GDP energy consumption and carbon emissions, this paper also finds the evidence for the existence of U-shaped curves in China and the western region of the country. The increase of technology market turnover contributes to the decrease of carbon emissions in the whole country and western region. But this trend is not obvious in the eastern and central regions. Meanwhile, this paper checks and analyzes the inverted U-shaped curve relation mentioned above statistically by means of Convergence Models.
