The article focuses on the impact of China's economic growth and environmental destruction on its chemical industry. The economy of China is growing at the expense of its environment which is being destroyed because of the greenhouse gases emitted by the chemical industry, contributing to global warming. If the country continues its acts, it would be under pressure to rein its use of coal for power generation and chemicals production. Less foreign investment in the chemical sector might happen.
