China to Limit CO2 Emissions
China will limit its carbon pollution starting in 2016, Reuters reports.
The world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter will write a CO2 emissions cap into its next five-year plan, according to He Jiankun, chairman of China’s Advisory Committee on Climate Change.
China’s energy-intensive and polluting industries continued to grow too fast in 2013, putting pressures on the environment and causing air quality to worsen further, according to a March report. The country’s pollution agency said China is still too slow when it comes to reforming its resource-intensive economy, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said in a statement to mark a report on pollution in 74 Chinese cities last year.
