China shuts down factories, twelve major cities aim to create fossil fuel free areas by 2030, New Zealand commits to climate change action and Singapore to freeze vehicle numbers 

Dear Australia .... China has shut down up to 40% of its factories in an unprecedented stand against pollution; twelve major cities including London,

Paris, Los Angeles and Cape Town promised on Monday to buy only zero-emissions buses from 2025 and to make major areas free of fossil fuel emissions by 2030; New Zealand's incoming Government is hoping to make the nation greener by planting 100 million trees each year, ensuring the electricity grid runs entirely from renewable energy, and spending more money on cycle ways and rail transport; and Singapore will freeze the number of vehicles on its roads by next February.
