China declares war on pollution
China's State Council and Central Committee have issued new guidelines for the "fight against pollution". Not only is the goal to reduce CO2 emissions, but air and water pollution as well. Regions such as Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei are to reduce coal use by ten percent by 2025, and the Yangtze River Delta is to reduce its use of coal by five percent. In addition, a "system to control the total amount of carbon dioxide emissions" is to be introduced. This includes, among other things, improved documentation of CO2 emissions and their polluters.
