How China Fights Pollution

America and China have agreed to work together to reduce the effects greenhouse gas emissions by developing cleaner cargo trucks. The two countries are the world leaders of greenhouse emissions and now here comes the newest method for how China fights pollution.

Eight cities in China will introduce measures to limit auto sales. This will triple the amount of cities already limiting automobiles where congestion and air pollution are getting worse. China auto sales could drop nationwide by 2%, according to Shi Juanhua, deputy secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Greenhouse gases are the cause of global warming. Yes our planet is warming and here goes some global warming info. The average temperature at the earth’s surface is rising, and that is due to increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Human activity has released huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the years, and the majority of those have been fossil fuels.

China is in the beginning stages of industrialization urbanization. Energy demand is expected to continue to rise as rapidly as the rate of consumption. It is predicted that the largest share of growth in energy consumption globally, all the way up to the year 2035, will be in China.

Coal satisfies the sufficient and inexpensive energy needed for its economic growth. And coal-fired power plants provide roughly 80% of Chinas electricity today at generally lower prices than any other source of energy. Unfortunately, the energy subsidies used to maintain the low cost encourage the use of not so environmentally friendly fossil fuels. This in turn complicates the ever-growing emissions challenges facing China. Energy pricing reform is clearly needed to balance Chinas energy triangle.

The restrictions on automobile purchases follows Chinese banks being caught up in a credit crunch that began back in late May due to a few different reasons. Mainly lower capital inflow from abroad, seasonal tax payments and mix-ups between short-term funding with long-term lending. This has caused a disruption in the market and June bank lending figures might have gotten hidden by it.

Banks are said to be taking twice as long to approve their customer loans since the cash crunch. The cash squeeze has also caused "philological panic among dealers over access to financing," Says Luo Lui, deputy secretary of the China Automotive Dealers Association. "So far, it hasn't caused any real damage to the industry, but if the cash crunch continues, it will spread to auto dealers."

I say more power to China for stepping up for the environment and joining America in its effort to minimize greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change with these proposed measures. After all, they are the leading contributors.

As a Boiler Operator I find this very imformative Ronald! We had to shut down our 500,000lbs/hr pulverizer coal boiler because of the new gas emissions laws. And I didn't know China were doing the same thing. I'm glad to be follow you. Thanks!
