China’s economy is growing fast, and China’s demand for energy is growing right along with it. To accommodate this growth in a sustainable manner, China must move away from a largely coal-based energy portfolio. If it does not, the already severe environmental impacts of large-scale coal usage will continue to grow with possible devastating consequences.

This podcast was taped at Stanford University, and was part of the 2007 MADE IN CHINA lecture series.
