Abstract: This report provides information on the additional "ancillary" benefits that China would experience by reducing emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. It investigates a number of options for mitigating CO2 emissions in the power and industrial sectors of Guiyang City. It calculates the impact these options would have on the citys overall air pollution and effects these changes in air quality would have on the health improvements and looks at the overall cost and benefit that each of the carbon dioxide reduction technologies would bring to society as a whole. It finds that a number of technologies would not only help address the problem of global warming but improve the quality of the citys air and the health of its people. Over time, these would pay themselves in terms of reduced mortality and illness levels. The report recommends that the government should support and legislate for such "no regrets" carbon dioxide reduction initiatives. It also recommends that similar studies be done in other cities to identify options suitable for those cities conditions.
