Tuesday, December 08, 2009

China faces a serious challenge as its representatives head to the Copenhagen climate talks: how to continue to urbanize and modernize while keeping carbon emissions in check.

We check in with the BBC’s Quentin Sommerville, who is watching the developments in Copenhagen from Chongqing.
