Chinese Climate Change Report Says Environmental Future "Grim"

Chinese Climate Change Report Says Environmental Future "Grim"

For those following the predicted impact of climate change in the coming decades, frankly none of this should come as much of a surprise. Indeed, TreeHugger has multiple posts on various aspects of the contents of this report. The thing that's worth noting here, that stands out to me here in the US, is again the contrast in the attitude of the Chinese government on climate compared to that here. Similar climate impacts will be felt in North America, and have been just as well documented, yet at the federal level, outside of select agencies, urgency about climate or even mentioning it simply isn't there, isn't happening. The head in the sand approach to climate here largely continues, while the rest of the world heads in another direction.
