Default Green power at work

The street lights on the street in rural areas in Xinjiang, China. They are all powered by green energy: solar panels and small wind turbines.

G'day mate

This sort of smart-thinking is what will lead them to take over the world in years to come. Those os us still living in 'traditional' lands [and hi-budget lobbyists] are about to be swept away

Phil.

This kind of forward thinking is necessary for China. Most of the people who go to China as tourists don't go far enough inland to see the remote parts of the country. These areas are full of poor people who need a lot of assistance. The wealth of the country does not spread into regions like these. The government is trying very hard to develop these area so people can live better. People are scared of China for developing so fast and may soon take over the world. This is a wrong assumption though, however. If one studies the history of China. Han ( majority tribe of China) dominated governments/dynasties never go beyond their territories to conquer and occupy. This is not the nature of the Chinese people. If one can go visit territories inland, one will find that China is not that well-off after all. They have a lot of people to feed and provide for.
