Air pollution near the Number One coal fired power plant. 75% of China's growing energy needs is supplied by coal, the cheapest and dirtiest form of energy. China is the world's largest producer of coal. Seven of the world's ten most polluted cities are in China, largely due to coal use and the country's dilapidated heavy industries.
