The Importance of Carbon Emissions from Asia


According to Mark Zoback, Professor of Geophysics at Stanford University, climate change is a global story -- but what happens in Asia matters more than what happens in the United States and Western Europe. "China has the potential to produce a lot of natural gas and decrease its dependence on coal. Not only is that bad for the climate, it's killing the Chinese," says Zoback.
