Environmental Clash

Environmental Clash

A sewerage system situated practically ON the lake? Perhaps it looks clean, but it SMELLS and God knows how much of it leaks out in the lake it is supposed to clean.

Gro Harlem Brundtland uttered the famous environmental words: Think global, act local.

Indeed, it is important to have the locals on board and as allies when implementing environmental projects. That is why it is paramount that the projects actually give the promised results - or at least some improvements. :-)

The environmental movement in China is very much aware of the need of individual engagement. One of the green organization uses the train as means of reaching the people in remote corners of China.

The same requirement of being practical and useful applies both in Norway and China and everywhere else.

This is a post in the Earth Day series.
