China sets air pollution goals

China sets air pollution goals

--FILE--Smoke is discharged from chimneys at a coal-fired power plant in Nantong city, east Chinas Jiangsu province, 9 December 2013. China has set new targets for its provinces to reduce air pollution by 5 to 25%, state media said late on Tuesday (7 January 2014), underscoring the governments concern about a source of public anger. China regularly issues directives to try to tackle air pollution in major cities, but these have had limited effect. Former health minister Chen Zhu said air pollution in the country causes premature deaths of 350,000 to 500,000 people yearly, state media reported on Tuesday. Chen wrote the article in a December issue of the Lancet medical journal.
