    Panos Mourdoukoutas has written this opinion piece on Forbes.com about why he believes China cannot fight pollution. According to him the problem is:

    "The problem, however, is, that by contrast to the US where the polluters are private companies, in China, by and large the polluters are government companies—State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and Town Village Enterprises (TVEs). This means that the government as owner and manager of these enterprises is part of the problem it is called to address."

    What do you think about this? Is state-ownership of energy companies and factories a problem?

    Personally I am a bit skeptical to this argument. I would think that this state-ownership is exactly WHY China can fight climate change and pollution. The Chinese government has direct control, and does not need to implement controls through a painfully slow legislation process. This allows them to respond to changes in their economy much more quickly.

    I don't often tend to buy eco friendly clothes but always try and go for a vegan option where possible. I'm not sure if this counts as well? Converse are quite a good choice because it doesn't hurt any animals in the making. I guess the rubber soles are a bit of an issue when it comes to recycling though. I would be interested to see some more links to environmentally friendly clothing if anybody else has any great recommendations?

    Do any of you actively prepare for off grid living or for economical issues that may force others into living green? Stockpiling food, learning herbology, and other forms of prepping maybe?

    I don't understand why people find it hip to drink expensive water which has traveled miles and been sitting in a fridge in some random shop for ages. I rather want fresh water from the tap.
