In the process of cutting carbon emissions, some regions have set overly ambitious and unrealistic goals or simply chanted slogans without taking actions, while some industries failed to make solid energy- Saving efforts in the hope that certain technology would solve the problem once and for all said Meng Wei, spokesperson for the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC),  adding that these issues must be addressed.
