  1. China Plans $290 Billion Environmental Investment 

    Chinese cities are famous for their air pollution, but the government has plans to (hopefully) change that soon. From 2013 to 2017, a $290 billion anti-pollution program aims to create alternative energy sources, build green public transport and research new ways to clean the air. Some have opposed the huge investment, but the anti-pollution plan could help China breathe easier in more ways than one. If successful, the scheme could boost the country’s GDP by $329 billion and create more than two million jobs.
