Last month, Guardian journalist and tireless eco activist, George Monbiot, was kind enough to give me half an hour of his time to discuss his dire predictions for the world on the eve of Copenhagen. Understandably, one of the greatest barriers to preventing catestrophic global warming that he identified, was China, which Monbiot described as both the greenest and the dirtiest country on Earth. “Greenest because of its vast investment in alternative energy, but the dirtiest because of its vast investment in coal.” I was very interested, then, to be sent this interview today by Dinah Ruth Gardner from Greenpeace, in which Monbiot elaborates on the China question. Still no sign of that elusive happy news, but he points to a number of potential solutions, including carbon capture and storage, which won’t always sit well with hardened eco warriors. Well worth a read.
