At one time there were fears China’s biggest cities would become uninhabitable because of pollution. But since Premier Li Keqiang’s declaration of war, the level of pollution has dropped by a third on average– with more work still to be done.
CGTN’s Jim Spellman has a report on efforts being made to reduce pollution in China.
To discuss China’s war on pollution:
- Wenran Jiang heads the Canada-China Energy and Environment Forum in Edmonton, Canada.
- Jeffrey Ball is Scholar-in-Residence at Stanford Law School’s Center for Energy Policy and Finance in Palo Alto, California.
- Huang Wei is an East Asia Climate and Energy Campaigner for Greenpeace in China.
- Jennifer Turner is the director of the China Environment Forum at the Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.
