Clayton Dube Talks About China's Pollution Problem with CCTV

CCTV spoke with Clayton Dube, director of the USC U.S.-China Institute, about China and their recent attempts to reduce pollution.

“With dramatic action, you can get some immediate results,” said Dube. “But, over the long term, it’s going to take steady work.”

China needs to increase energy efficiency and decrease pollution from thermal plants, he added.

“In the short term, the gains are not likely to be obvious, but with sustained effort, there can be progress made,” said Dube.

Dube also discussed how China has been working toward political and economic reform.
