“China in the last five years has very consciously moved to slow the rate of its greenhouse gas emissions by curbing its energy intensity, becoming a world leader in renewable energy, and most recently establishing carbon trading systems in its largest provinces. These actions not only have positive impact on the climate, but are driven by self interest in strengthening energy security, developing a low carbon economy with export opportunities and in showing international leadership.”
-John Connor, CEO of The Climate Institute
