They maybe the leader infighting Climate change but they are losing terrible. It is the dirtiest 120 level GDP country in the world. Yes like everything that comes out of China " China may one day be the world’s leader", or "people say". such vague and unsubstantiated remarks. Look at China"s record. It cannot feed its peopled or insure its food quality. Years of pollution and years of saying the pollution will get better only produces worse pollution.

Thanks to USA and the West which transported many of their inefficient machineries to China as part of their investment in the early time but things are changing as like or not, China appeared to be the only nation in the world committed to using NUCLEAR POWER GENERATION. The first thorium salt pebblebed Nuclear reputed to be the safest in the world has already come online. They are also the top machinery producer in the world today.
They are the top wind or solar generating nation in the world today, etc etc.

As the factory of the world, these are sacrifices a nation has to make today.
Over the next 5~10 years, I believe the sky and landscape of China will changed as China is indeed working hard on those solution which will not be easy.

Look at Indonesia, every year, they will polluted our air we breath with debris and smoke from the burning jungles. In Singapore, there were times even the airliners cannot land.
