Is China Ahead of the US in Greening?

Survey reveals that Chinese are leading conservation measures to combat regional environmental degradation.

electricity conservation Compact fluorescent lamps use between a quarter and a fifth of the energy of incandescent bulbs producing the same light...and LEDs use even less energy. And sunlight uses even less. And less uses less. :-) As the environment in China has increasingly degraded over the years the Chinese people are yearning for improved living conditions. "Where there's a will, there's a way," as my Mama used to say.

The Reuters Environmental Summit revealed some interesting green the globe facts and progress reports:

  • China is the first developing nation to agree to trade incandescent lights for compact fluorescent lamps that cost more but use up to 80 percent less energy during the next 10 years. The program also is being discussed in the U.S. China makes 70 percent of the world's lightbulbs...
  • A survey found that 67% percent of Chinese consumers said they would rather buy products from companies with strong environmental records, compared to 42 percent of Americans and 52 percent of Australians.
  • A high percentage of Canadians, Australians and Chinese said they were taking personal steps to reduce their carbon footprints. Americans landed in seventh place.

Excessive Choice Leads to Waste...and Higher Manufacturing Cost

Because the lightbulb program will be worldwide, it could reduce the number of types of lightbulbs from 30 or so to four or five, thus reducing the cost of manufacturing equipment.

Funding Global Environmental Change is Big Business

The Global Environment Facility is one of the richest and least-known environmental funding agencies worldwide. With a current trust fund of about $3.2 billion, the Washington, D.C.-based agency is the financial arm for international intergovernmental agreements on biodiversity, climate change and persistent organic pollutants. It also supports agreements on international waters, ozone and desertification.
