Read an Excerpt

China has been experiencing more than 30 years of rapid growth since the start of Reform and Opening Up in 1978. During the global financial crisis, China’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) still grew at 8.7% and reached CNY33.5 trillion (USD4.9 trillion) in 2009. However, China’s high-investment, low-efficiency development model has contributed to the rise of severe pollution issues. In 2003, China accounted for 4% of global GDP, but consumed 30%, 40%, and 31% of the total world outputs of steel, cement, and coal, respectively, and the losses caused by environmental pollution and ecological destruction equaled 15% of its GDP. In 2006, China overtook the U.S. as the world’s largest annual carbon dioxide emitter with 610 billion tons of emissions, an increase of 153% over 1990.
