Part 1: Air quality in China

One of the major concerns that members of the congress will deliberate is air quality in China, the most dynamic emerging market codenamed the world’s factory. Under the intensive scrutiny of social media, the Chinese authorities have finally agreed to come to terms with a harsher standard, called PM 2.5, an air quality measurement initially employed by the US Embassy whose approach has embarrassed Chinese government. It means most Chinese cities will not pass the standards.

Which proposals stand out?

PM 2.5, milestone standard for air quality

Finding Alternatives to coal

Nuke Nightmare & clean energy

Japan energy efficiency

Part 2: Climate change

Climate change remains a hot topic for media discussions, for low-lying countries, emerging markets and industrial nations the world over. Responsibilities and stakes should come hand in hand despite huge differences in policy options due to historical reasons and different levels of economic development. China is clearly aware of growing expectations from within and without. Here with us are Mr. Qi Ye and Mr. Lu Yuebing. The same time, we are joined live by Mr. Yariv Cohen who is standing by in London.
