The population, energy consumption，and the climate forcing for anthropogenic heat release (AHR) in China and in different provinces and areas were analyzed, as well as the relationship among them. Besides, the climate forcing for AHR in the future was predicted. The result shows that the climate forcing for AHR has greatly increased during recent 30 years. In 1978, the climate forcing for AHR is only 0.07 W·m-2, while it has increased to 0.28 W·m-2 in 2008.The distribution of AHR has regional characteristics in China，that is, the climate forcing for AHR in the northwestern part of China,they is very little, while in North China, Central China, East China，and South China,they are much higher than other regions. The distribution of the climate forcing for AHR is nonuniform，and it may be very high in some regions. It may influence the regional climate，as well as the climate of China, even the world climate.
