This Video starts off pretty positive, even supportive, but it doesn’t back away from asking some hardball questions

There’s no denying the impressive-sounding scale of China’s ‘green commitments’ and there’s little doubt that they seem keen to fulfil them, but the tough questions raised here are about whether the plans are genuinely green enough, or whether they may turn out to be too little, too late.

China may nonetheless be able to take advantage of its centralised structure to ‘turn greener faster’ in the long run, and this may ultimately enable them to win first prize in a ‘we made our critics look foolish’ contest.
