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. Professor Tony Kovscek believes there is hope in China if it turns to energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy sources. This podcast was taped at Stanford University, and was part of the 2007 MADE IN CHINA lecture series.
