China turns to green energy to combat climate change

Author  :       Source  :    Chinese Social Sciences Today     2016-07-21

The wider utilization of non-fossil fuels has played a major role in growing China’s GDP to 67.7 trillion yuan ($10.1 trillion), 148 percent higher than in 2005, while carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP have been lowered by 38 percent compared with 2005, said Xie Zhenhua, China’s chief climate negotiator on July 8 at the opening ceremony of the Eco Forum Global Annual Conference Guiyang 2016. As one of the largest global carbon emitters, China has implemented multiple policies and efforts in industrial restructuring, enhancing energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions, with a remarkable effect on pursuing a low carbon economy, Xie said. William Ruto, vice-president of Kenya, attended the conference and praised China’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions while calling for more cooperation between Africa and China in the field of green energy.
