SPOTLIGHT

1. EMISSIONS:

Beijing's record smog poses health nightmare as China plans 'green' energy future

For those living outside China, Beijing's smoggy air is scary but remote. For those who have been living with the past three weeks of foul air, it's a call to action. Last month, Beijing hit record levels of air pollution, engulfing the city with smog 20 times higher than world safety levels. The dark, sooty air gave ample evidence that, although China's leaders have been pushing clean technology, implementing it at home is a job that remains undone.

2. FORESTS:

Pulp and paper giant pledges to end clearcutting

The third-largest pulp and paper company in the world has agreed to stop all deforestation in Indonesia, following an agreement with the environmental group Greenpeace. Since Feb. 1, Asia Pulp and Paper no longer cuts native forests, develops plantations on carbon-rich peatlands or disrupts lands that host a variety of wildlife, like the endangered Sumatran tiger.
