2013-11-25 Combating Climate Change: Europe's Experiences
   2013-11-22 17:04:54    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Chen Cong

Europe once suffered terribly as a result of gas emissions. The fatal Great Smog in 1952 in London was reported to have resulted in the deaths of 12,000 people following its aftermath. But Europe was able to learn from its past quickly and come up with potent actions to slash gas emissions. Europe's long term commitment to green development has gained itself a head-start in green technologies. Today Europe is at the very forefront of a global endeavor to combat climate change. As the Warsaw UN Climate change conference comes to an end in Poland, we try to explore what makes Europe successful in combating climate change.

So how do European experts assess the role of Europe in combating climate change today? How can developing countries benefit more from cooperation with Europe?

Ni Hao, you're listening to People In the Know, bringing you insights into the headlines in China and around the world, I'm Zheng Chenguang in Beijing.

In this program, we speak to Paul McAleavey, head of the climate change program at the European Environment Agency, and Dr. Niklas Hohne, Director of Energy and Climate Policy in Ecofys, a leading consultancy in energy and climate policy.
