MyBurningEars November 17, 2013 at 1:10 pm I don’t think Tim is contending that China is at peak pollution just yet … the point at which pollution goes from exponential growth, to growth at a decreasing rate as controls are brought in, would be an inflection point that hopefully points to pollution peaking then declining later. pedant2007 November 17, 2013 at 8:23 pm Yes, Matt’s comment echoes my puzzlement. It’s not just Tim; I’ve seen the same on other blogs. Is it that economists define “inflection point” differently? Certainly Tim’s ASI piece says “turning point” on the graph.
