    My ex-wife just went to china to source fabric for her ribbon factory in India. she said the prices weren't great, the selection sucked, the language barrier was bad, and the food was ungood, even though everything looked like Bladerunner.

    That's interesting. Chinese regime respect for the environment and replenishable resources is nil... something that will be a serious problem for them in the future (as it is for the former Soviet Union now). the environmentalists in this country think the US is bad, we're green and great compared to what China, North Korea, Russia, etc etc have done and continue to do to their lands.

    China's rise may yet be overstated.

    Yeah, but hey, they're authoritarian, hence the left automatically loves them. What's up with that? It's so sick.

    That's so funny! On another board, I was reading that they (meaning the posters) think that China will naturally adopt all sorts of environmental measures since their economy is booming and they can afford it, unlike your Prez.

    Oh god. Of COURSE they will. They're just naturally good people, as opposed to the bad white people.

    Yes, Germany selling them alot of energy systemsbased on envireonmet-friendly technology.
    EU and China need themself as EU sees future there.
    over 100 mio pieces of chinese textiles were lying at European custom, and EU not letting in. Now this has been solved...

    Solana, foreign Ppolitician of eu says they will exit the arms-selling ban to china.
    Chirac and schreder gavt this promise months ago, and it seems, that now with EU-China talks over Textile dispute, this arms-ban was discussed too and solved in pro-Chinese way.

    There you have it; China must be a morally superior Green Superpower after all. The EU couldn't be more misguided.

    i do not say they are green-energy heaven, but they are investing a lot in these technologies, otherwise china will be toxious with some day growing energy consumption.

    To eu:
    money lies there in china. they have same interests.

    No. The money is here. China is nothing without the U.S. as a customer. And their growth will be hampered until they understand that the international community will not invest in chinese corps with mysterious management practices and inconsistent governmental interference. Did you read this article? What they have in common is a bad case of AMerica-envy, just like everyone.
