|Dr. Henderson indicates that historically China has emphasized living in harmony with nature. However, China’s transition from a rural agriculture community to an urban, industrial community has had detrimental impact on the environment both globally and locally. Dr. Henderson presents convincing graphs on the effect of this transition to global climate change and its effect on China itself. However, the Chinese Government is paying attention “to make our country green”, people’s consciousness are being raised, local people are making many more protests appealing to the Central Government on environmental issues, and a number of international corporations manufacturing in China are also raising environmental standards.
