China chokes

Ian Katz has a useful overview of how thinking and action on climate change goes in China - and how, not least, the immediate effects of local air and water pollution are near the top of people's concerns.

What will make it possible for the Chinese people to achieve on localized pollution as much as Western, especially U.S. campaigners did in the 1960s and 1970s? And how can they help the world not to miss the opportunities that -- if the film Earth Days is to be believed -- Westerners missed in the 1970s and beyond?
