Abstract

This paper studied the dynamic relationship between China's carbon emissions and economic growth from1960 to 2009. The results indicate that as the economy growed, carbon dioxide emissions has increased steadily since 1960.The use of environmental Kuznets curve model to simulate the relationship of per capita carbon emissions and GDP per capita from 1960 to 2009, the results show China's carbon emissions in line with traditional environmental Kuznets inverted U-shaped curve, China has now broken through the inflection point, the future can be foresee as the economy grows, China's carbon emissions growth will slow down, and gradually reduce, so Chinese energy conservation and emissions reduction can be achieved.
