Keywords:China? energy law draft? climate change?

A draft of the long-awaited energy law of China has been released, according to an Associated Press report. The law calls for the country to keep larger reserves of oil, uranium and other key resources, and to establish a new government department. The government will collect opinions on the draft until Feb. 2, and later is expected to present it to the National People's Congress for approval.

The new law intends to help China better develop the strategically vital energy sector. Article 5 of the proposed law calls for the country to adjust its energy use. The government would support recycling, emissions reductions and development of "clean" energy resources such as solar, wind and tidal power and other changes "effective against climate change." This is according to a copy of the draft distributed online by the state-run newspaper Shanghai Securities News.
