ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES IN CHINA AND BEYOND: CAN THE WORLD SURVIVE?
The Confucius Institute at Bangor University is delighted to host a talk by Dr Harvey Dzodin, a highly sought-after speaker and consultant in China and abroad.
Given the results of COP26 and the disheartening recent United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, UN Secretary-General Guterres has commented that “the world is sleepwalking to climate catastrophe”. China is the global leader in emitting greenhouse gases with its excessive reliance on coal and other polluting fuel sources. Will China be able to meet its pledge to peak CO2 emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2060? Is the damage reversible, and if not, what are the consequences?
