Does China have any kind of standards when it comes to coal mine emissions?

    Despite talk from officials of limiting production and tougher environmental standards at various conferences, none of the agreements the country has made have really been legally binding, and for the agreements that are legally binding — well, China opted out of those. Currently, coal output is still surging, and China is still spending heavily on new explorations projects. On the flip side, China is also investing in renewable energy more than any other country, so it will hopefully be able to fulfill its proposed goal of of decreasing its reliance of coal to 63 percent of its total energy consumption by 2015 (which doesn’t sound like a very ambitious goal, but it’s important to remember that China doesn’t have a lot of gas or oil, and that coal is the country’s cheapest and most abundant fuel resource.
