China offers the greatest conundrum of our times. China’s rapid modernization over the last 3 decades has brought millions out of poverty, but has left China with 16 of the world’s 20 most polluted cities (357 out of 696 cities experienced acid rain) in 2005. China should be an example to all economies, to focus solely on economic growth to the exclusion of sustainable practices only gives the illusion of economic prosperity,” said Anna Clark – President, EarthPeople, LLC, a Dallasbased consulting firm – in a chat with B&E. The Chinese authorities are not dismissing this as another western onslaught aimed at disrupting their economic growth. “There seems to be a great deal of interest in protecting the environment from the central government in China. There’s innovation around issues like green building & solar power. But China is also building a lot of coal plants. And in the province, rapid economic development and job creation take precedence over environmental protection. So the picture is very mixed,” said Marc Gunther, a senior writer at Fortune & the author of Faith & Fortune: How Compassionate Capitalism is Transforming American Business.
