NYT - China's Little Green Book (Thomas Friedman)

Thomas Friedman from Beijing:
In China, conservation is not a "personal virtue," as Dick Cheney would say. Today it is a necessity. It was so polluted in Beijing the other day you could not make out buildings six blocks away. That's the bad news. Here's the good news: China's leaders and business community know it.

Green technology will decide whether China continues on its current growth path or chokes itself to death. So green innovation is starting to mushroom in China.

A study by the Chinese Academy on Environmental Planning, found that in the year 2003, 300,000 people in China died from outdoor pollution, while 111,000 died from indoor pollution.
