[WorldWatch Institute via AFP via TerraDaily]:

Energy guzzlers China and India are often blamed for
some of the world’s environmental problems, but a new study says the
two most populous nations may well set the stage for a clean and green
Earth.

The two countries are mastering energy-efficient technologies,
implementing cheap and environmentally-responsible transportation
systems, and adopting new water harvesting techniques as models for a
sustainable economy, says the annual report of the US-based Worldwatch
Institute.

The US powers-that-be may have once again missed the cue. The problem wasn’t that the Kyoto Protocol was going to give China and India a free ride. No… it was that the US was going to fall asleep at the wheel while the world changed.

Though I wan’t expecting to see phrases like ‘China’s world leading solar-industry‘ just yet. Were you?
