It produces more than a quarter of the world’s human-caused global warming gases, nearly as much as North America and Europe put together…[But it will now work to operate] the world’s largest financial market devoted to cleaning up the air…The nationwide market [to trade credits for the right to emit planet-warming greenhouse gases] would initially cover China’s vast, state-dominated power generation sector, which produced almost half of the country’s emissions from the burning of fossil fuels last year.

    …[This] is ‘another powerful sign that a global sustainability revolution is underway,’ [according to Al Gore, the former vice president and a prominent voice on the environment]…China’s emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels like oil, coal and natural gas have nearly tripled since 2000…[but its] emissions per person are still somewhat less than the average [U.S.] per capita figure…Under emission markets, power companies and others effectively pay for the right to pollute beyond a government-mandated limit.
