Making Economic Advancement Mean Ecological Improvement
First Supergrid Proposal is Now Available Below
At the World Cultural Forum in Hangzhou in May 2013, Chinese officials expressed the necessity to pursue the transformation from industrial business as usual to an ecological civilization and a willingness to trade reduced economic growth for ecological improvement. The goal of the China International Working Groups (CIWG) is making economic growth mean ecological improvement. The price system and new mandated market rules that we suggest will send signals for both sustainability and economic growth.
The CIWG will conduct research and design policy that will assist China in implementing aspects of the program agenda that we lay out here. This will, of course, with appropriate variations be applicable to other nations. If China leads, the rest of the world may follow. The focus of the agenda that Roy Morrison presented in Hangzhou with his Plenary Speech was on efficient renewable energy, a necessary, but not sufficient part of an ecological transformation.
Director Morrison is authoring a new book entitled: The Pursuit of an Ecological Future: Making Economic Growth Mean Ecological Improvement. His newest work lays out a comprehensive strategy for the conversion from an ecomony based ona reliance on fossil fuels and ecological degredation, to one in which renewables are the mainstay and economic growth means ecological prosperity. You can find a preview of the book here.
