Is China’s New 5 Year Plan Environmentally Friendly?

China’s new much anticipated 2021-2026 5 year plan has just been shown to the public, and many environmentalist expected it to have a very green forward agenda, but is it as green as it was made off to be. To answer that question I interviewed Isabel Hilton. She is a journalist who has worked in multiple mediums before becoming

the founder of China Dialogue. China Dialogue which was the world’s first bilingual Chinese english website. Its goal is to look at climate change and china’s environmental crisis. I asked her what China’s 5 year plans are, if this brand new plan is good for the environment, and if this plan will allow china to reach its goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.
