China set to launch first caps on CO2 emissions

China has said that it will take another (small) step towards controlling its GHG emissions.  This is supposed to be an actual cap on emissions in seven provinces and cities, not just an intensity target or an emissions permit trading scheme.  Whether the, um, flexible nature of China’s local governments will actually produce meaningful results, we’ll have to wait and see.
