Reassessing the Carbon Kuznets Curve: Panel Data Model Analysis for Prefecture-level Cities in China

Yanhong Li

Abstract

This article is based on Environmental Kuznets Curve, and analyzes the relationship between carbon Emissions and Economic Growth in prefectural cities in China by using Panel Data Model. Variable time span is 14 years. Cross-section covers more than 200 prefecture-level cities .It shows that with the development of economic, carbon emissions are on the rise. The carbon Kuznets curve presents a curve with an upper right slant. Inverse U-shaped relationship is not obvious or the inflection point is not reached .This shows that passively waiting for economic growth to improve the quality of environment does not meet China’s development model, and coordinated development of economic growth and quality of environment is the fundamental way for China’s sustainable development.
