As world leaders meet for another round of global warming talks, the focus is likely to be on big polluters like China. The country has recently become the world’s biggest CO2 emitter.

Currently, 80% of China’s energy comes from coal. Mindful of the pollution these power stations generate, the government is investing billions in renewable energy. “China is probably going to be the world’s number one renewable energy country”, predicts businessman Mark Kelleher. By 2020, 16% of the country’s energy must come from renewable sources. Much of this will be generated by wind farms. “This area has really developed since the wind power station was built”, enthuses one local. “When the wind power station came, people got jobs”.
