China's rapid economic rise has come at great environmental cost. Coal provides 70% of China's energy needs, contributing to the fact that only 1% of the country's 560 million city dwellers breathe air considered safe by the European Union. As the recall of millions of toys, for reasons including the use of lead paint, and the extinction of the Yangtze River dolphin have hit the headlines, and the 2008 Summer Olympics approaches, China is under a lot of pressure and scrutiny from the rest of the world to take measures to drastically reduce its pollution.
