ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the state of pollution in China. With ongoing preparations for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China, the government is adopting projects to clean this country's notoriously polluted capital in time for the games. Renewable energy is the core of this drive. Some of the targets include solar heating for 90% of water used for bathing, city's street lamps to be running on solar power, and the use of wind power to generate 20% of the electricity for Olympic venues. Pilot projects dealing on this concern are now being initialized. INSET: SHANGHAI CATCHES THE SUN..
