China’s rapid industrialization has caused tremendous environmental damage, which in turn has stagnated growth – a 2007 World Bank study concluded that air and water pollution costs China about 4.3 percent annual GDP. Fearing this could lead to social unrest, Premier Li Keqiang declared “war on pollution” in 2013. Two years later, do we see progress, or is this “war” mostly being waged for public perception? Here’s a China environment panel that digs beyond cliché to unveil the problems and challenges at the center of China’s environmental quandary. Featuring Anders Hove, Associate Director for China Research at the Paulson Institute; Li Yan, Deputy Program Director of Greenpeace East Asia; and Ma Tianjie, managing editor in the Beijing office of China Dialogue, a organization specializing in reporting on China’s environment; moderated by New York Times Beijing Bureau Chief Edward Wong.

中国极速的工业化已经造成了巨大的环境伤害 – 而这些污染在问题已经开始影响中国的经济发展。2007年世界银行的一项研究发现中国每年花费在治理空气和水污染的费用已经达到GDP的4.3%。总理李克强早已在2013年宣布了要打一场“治理雾霾的攻坚持久战”。两年之后的今天,我们真的看到了进展么?还是这一切只不过是宣传?我们在这次讨论中将打破传统的误解,深入挖掘中国污染治理问题的本质。我们邀请到了:Paulson Institute的中国研究的副主任Anders Hove;Greenpeace East Asia的副项目主管Li Yan;China Dialogue(一个专门报道中国环境内容的组织)的管理编辑Ma Tianjie。主持人是纽约斯堡的北京总编辑Edward Wong。
