This article explores China's prioritization of economic growth over the environment. Every time China's economy doubles, so does its per capita energy consumption. Even by the government's own figures, Chinas economic growth has resulted in carbon dioxide pollution increasing by 44.5% between 1990 and 2002, to 3.3 billion tonnes. The 2006 Renewable Energy Law mandates a growth in the use of nuclear and wind-farm electricity generation.
