No Climate Protection without China
The People’s Republic of China is one of today's most significant global players ‒ both economically and politically. In only 30 years, the country has lifted almost half of its current population of close to 1.4 billion out of absolute poverty.
This impressive economic success however has a high price: The pollution of air, soil and waterbodies, resulting from the dynamic economic growth, comes along with enormous challenges – reaching far beyond China’s borders. While air pollution often may be limited to the region, the disposal of sewage and solid waste into rivers and the sea, and China’s greenhouse gas emissions, being of global significance, have negative repercussions for the environment in Europe – and thus also in Germany. In other words: climate protection can only be effective by involving China.
