US official highlights China environment efforts

The US treasury secretary was shown efforts to reverse environmental degradation around China's largest inland lake, Reuters reported on Monday.
"Climate change is a very important issue in this country, it’s very important globally and it’s very important in the US" Henry Paulson told reporters during a visit to the Qinghai Lake, which is shrinking due to rising temperatures.
"By coming here I call attention to what China is doing environmentally and reinforce what they’re doing."
