The Chinese government announced plans yesterday to improve its response to sandstorms and other environmental risks in the coming decade. Premier Wen Jiabao chaired a State Council meeting to discuss the second stage of the Beijing-Tianjin Sandstorm Control Program (2013-2022). A statement issued following the meeting said the control plan will extend from 75 to 138 counties in Beijing and Tianjin, and the four surrounding provinces. Also announced was the launch of Low Carbon Day to begin next year in June. The day aims to promote awareness about climate change and the country’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
