China can cut emissions without hurting growth, says Gore

China can cut its carbon emissions without jeopardising economic growth if it uses new technologies, Reuters reported former US vice president Al Gore as saying on Tuesday.
The report cited Gore as taking the mobile phone industry as an example of a business that does not need to burn fossil fuels such as
oil and coal.
"There are ways to leap-frog the old, dirty technologies," said Gore.
"China has a great deal at risk," he said. "The water crisis is very closely related to the climate crisis."
