High price to pay for China’s wealth – Jeff Nesmith

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Growing prosperity in China threatens to place intolerable burdens on the world’s natural resources, an environmental researcher has warned.

Unless the global economy is fundamentally restructured, the world will be unable to produce enough energy, food and other resources to meet Chinese demand, the president of the Earth Policy Institute, Lester Brown, said.

See Brown’s report “Plan B 2.0: Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble” from the Earth Policy Institute.
