In this Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 photo, farmer Adiya, right, stands in front of a pond of waste water near a state-of-the-art power plant that turns millions of tons of coal every year into methane in northern China's Inner Mongolia province. As a boy growing up there, Adiya could ride his horse through waist-high grass for miles without meeting another person.
