Comments on: Will China make the world green? http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/2010/10/05/will-china-make-the-world-green/ Shining a light on the dismal science Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:39:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: ROWnine http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/2010/10/05/will-china-make-the-world-green/comment-page-1/#comment-2208 Fri, 04 Feb 2011 01:07:38 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/?p=4375#comment-2208 We tried to go green in the US. We passed laws that had our steel plants treat the water they used and clean the fumes they produced. Companies cried that the cost was making them uncompetitive. Then congress passed trade bills that made it real easy for business to break up these plants ship them off to India and China were little or no regulation would make them competitive once again. Now the polluted water and air in China is causing similar birth defects and long term health problems we saw here . The moral of the story is that in all likelihood the invisible hand of commerce will continue to shove these problems on to the next emerging economy once the next bunch of captains of industry start to feel the shadow of the masses at their back.

China is at the stage of development, China is huge, it is inevitable that some remote areas of management is poor. May I ask, can you say that the U.S. is a perfect it? So please, treat with a good development in China. Thank you

China will lead in a Green Economy only if they think it’s best for their GDP, not because of a deep concern about the environment.

That’s a funny idea! I think the only thing we can rely on China to do is turn the planet red.

Why we are giving all this business to a corrupt and tyrannical government, so that they can gain a position of
power over us, is beyond me.

Once they are powerful enough they will begin to lay down the law to us. And, if we object, they will use their military might to force us onto the same treadmill that their own people have been slaves to all their miserable lives.

Why are we empowering this future enemy – who one day we will have to fight for our freedom? Look at the way they treat their own people… One day they will start to treat us that way too!

On during my numerous trips to China since 2000.

China is experiencing an “ecological schizophrenia.” That is, it’s quickly assuming the world lead in developing and deploying green technology, especially in terms of solar and wind power, YET continues to open filthy pollution-belching coal-fired power plants at the rate of about 1-2 per WEEK. They also are pushing nuclear, which makes me nervous; I think “Chernobyl” every time I think about nuclear power plants in China.

I don’t know if it’s even possible to know, at this point, just how China will turn out in this regard.

Rather, anything that is capable of being burnt in this country, is. The air is so putrid where I live in Central China, that I have to seal my home up at night in order to sleep.

Money always wins over the environment and the plight of common men.

You ignored the Kyoto protocol as just about the only developed country on this planet and decided to wage war against Irak and its elusive “weapons of mass destruction” instead. Think about how much research could have been done in green technology for all that money.
And hey the best thing is, there are still some out there who want that kind of decision making back.
Are the American banks benefitting from the coming Chinese boom as much as if it had happened in the U.S. instead?

So far the USA has failed to measure up to the challenge. Too much invested in old technologies and too comfortable to envision a new model of economy. China’s leadership is way too interested in its own power to allow the changes necessary to divest itself of an eco-destructive cash generator economy. I cannot see anything but an Armageddon capable of the magnitude necessary to change minds and habits towards a sustainable life style for the people of earth.
