http://www.iht.com/articles/20...../china.php

Quote:
Prime Minister Wen Jiabao conceded Monday that China was failing on important energy and pollution goals and declared that the country must become more energy efficient and quickly improve environmental protection to safeguard the long-term health of its booming economy.

Wen, making the annual address on the state of China, also pledged more government spending on education and health care, particularly for poorer residents in rural areas. His nationally televised speech, which opened the annual gathering of the National People's Congress in Beijing, was generally short on specifics but emphasized past themes like social equality and the need to reduce the income gap between rural and urban residents.


Oh, and "annual address on the state of China"... how "American", said the Canadian...

This is my biggest problem with Kyoto. We are expected to make changes to our daily routines to avoid some future cataclysmic event (which I'm not sold on anyway, but that's another story for another time) yet the true polluters are expected to do nothing. I'm not suggesting we adopt a defeatist attitude and say "what's the use" but cripes - what possible diff will we make when the Chinas and Indias of the world do nothing.

That Russia is way below 1991 levels is kind of unfair as well. They can sell carbon credits because their political system collapsed?

Lets hope China really steps up on the envrioment. As the world most populated country they could really do a lot to save our environment. They can also set an example for other countries(a.k.a USA) to step up on greenhouse gas emmisions.

Considering how many very unclean coal plants they're continuing to fire up, I very much doubt China's sincerity. More likely, this is a preamble to some kind of emissions trading scam where they try to sell us credits...
