China and the Transition to a Sustainable EconomyWednesday, February 15, 2012 19:41
Following last week’s piece on moving from band-aids to solutions, I thought I would share the above as another example of where I see flawed thinking on sustainability.
Great package. Statistics that back up his points. Key messages hit.
But for anyone who has been involved in sustainability, this message is lacking depth. Particularly as his statistics and key messages are only meant to potential of China versus the reality.
In truth, China is making big moves. And it is spending big money. But the problems are still very grave, are growing in number, and regardless of how much has been invested in “clean energy” in the last 2-3 years in China, the fact remains that much of it is still not connected to the grid.
