CHINA'S ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS
Since China started economic reforms in 1978, the country's GDP has expanded faster than 10% a year. But China's single minded focus on economic growth has come with a price. China's environment is one of the most polluted in the world. Two-thirds of China's cities do not have clean water to drink. China has overtaken the U.S. as the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Only 1% of China’s urban population of 560 million now breathes air considered safe by the EU.
