Chinese social and meteorologic scientists have unveiled their latest discoveries about the country's challenges and developments in tackling climate change. This year's annual report, the Climate Change Green Paper, was published on Monday.


Why is climate change such a threat?

How can we share emission cut responsibilities?

And what can we expect from the next round of negotiations?

Chinese scientists say the green paper is aimed at finding answers to these questions.

Wang Weiguang, Vice President of China Academy of Social Science, said, "This paper will help the world learn about China's concern for the problem of climate change, give impetus to more reasonable international rules, and actions to tackle climate change,as well as help the Cancun UN climate change conference produce more practical results."

The Cancun conference is meant to be the stepping stone to a legally binding deal next year on reducing greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the effects of global warming.

The Green Paper says China hopes to see progress in Cancun, but would not yield on its right to make economic growth an overriding priority.

Su Wei, Chinese Chief Climate Negotiator, said, "China will adhere to its road of sustainable development and speed up the creation of green and low carbon living and consuming styles. China will continue its active and constructive role in tackling climate change with other countries."

The Green Paper also summarizes China's latest achievements in cutting carbon emissions by applying more green technologies in urban construction.

The writers hope their work will underscore the importance of going green within government policies and the ideas of the Chinese people.
