The aim of the paper is to explore the empirical relationship between economic growth and carbon dioxide emissions in China, and investigate what are the main determinants of carbon emissions and how are they affect it. We analyzes panel data of the 30 provinces with a time period from 2000 to 2008. The research finds no compelling evidence for the existence of Environmental Kuznets Curve. Further research is needed.
