China's massive reliance on coal to meet its energy needs is turning the country into an environmental deathtrap, said Chip Jacobs, author of 'The People's Republic of Chemicals'. Jacobs added that the country has an 'ancient love affair' with coal power that it cannot break. He said President Obama can pressure the Chinese to improve their environmental practices through the WTO, adding that the Clinton administration was not strict enough when it let China into the organization. Finally, Jacobs said China is losing 1.2 million citizens a year as a result of outdoor air pollution and that is unsustainable.
