Climate commissioner Xie: carbon neutrality will be very expensive
China's chief climate envoy, Xie Zhenhua, has promoted the opportunities of transforming China's economy to meet climate goals at a conference. Xie projects that spending of ¥130 trillion ($19 trillion) will be needed to meet the country's climate goals.
