CNN's Helen Regan is reporting on China's pollution. 

In 2023, China experienced its hottest year on record, marked by deadly heat waves and other extreme weather events, as reported by state media. This aligns with global trends, making 2023 the hottest year globally due to El Niño and climate change. China's average temperature reached a record 10.7°C, breaking the 2021 record. The country faced widespread heat, straining its power grid and impacting agriculture, raising food security concerns. Alongside the heat, China also recorded its lowest temperature and experienced devastating floods, with heavy rainfall causing significant damage and displacement. As the world's biggest polluter, China's actions are crucial in combating climate change. While China has not committed to certain international renewable energy targets, it is making significant strides in sustainable energy production and played a key role in the COP28 summit, focusing on transitioning away from fossil fuels.
