    Mongolia's government is attempting to cut down on pollution caused by the burning of coal and wood by subsidising clean stoves. 

    The country is known as the "Land of Eternal Blue Sky", but its capital, Ulaanbaatar, is one of the most polluted, with 60-70 percent of that pollution coming from the burning of coal and wood.
