GREEN QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Why are we being forced to choose between the economy and the environment? We tend to forget that without an environment we would not have an economy, as everything we consume and I mean everything comes from our environment."

~ Franke James (contemporary artist, photographer, writer)

China's "Green" Horizon

What's on China's environmentally sustainable horizon these days?

A great interview here with analyst Julian Wong (author of The Green Leap Forward)
breaks it down in a positively "green" tone, focusing on the country's clean energy race and drive to keep up with the west.

Oh my, how the times they are a changing.
The answers must be blowing in the wind...??

What is the Green Leap Forward?
