China is set to become a very major contributer to global warming because of their fast growing economy and large industries.

China currently gets most of their energy from coal burning plants which generate greenhouse gases. This donation of a clean coal plant by the EU, which the Chinese can use as a model to build additional plants, should reduce future amounts of greenhouse gases.


The European Union is to give China a clean-burning coal power plant to help it do more to curb carbon emissions and fight global warming, under a deal signed Monday at the EU-China summit in Beijing.

The two sides signed a joint declaration on climate change that calls for a "partnership" to enable more cooperation and dialogue on clean energy and sustainable development.

It will see the Europeans give China a coal-fired power plant that emits relatively small amounts of greenhouse gases, giving Chinese engineers a model to copy when they build their own power stations.

Is this really a solution? I mean can you really make a cleaner plant? One that produces less CO2? I know you can make them produce less coal dust. Would one plant really make a difference?

The idea is to give them a working model that they can copy and use everywhere.

It will help, yes.

Not as much as stopping the coal use, but it's something.
