China is the most populous nation on Earth. It covers a massive land area There is both great poverty and great wealth there. It is a nominally communist nation - largely free market in practice, but access to information is restricted and government regulation is extensive in many areas, notably the one child policy for reducing population growth.

China is investing large amounts in sustainable technologies such as solar energy, as well as low-carbon technologies such as carbon capture and storage. However, it continues to build large numbers of coal-fired power plants.
