How Europe’s Green Policies Create Jobs In The Far East

HOW Green is Euope? How eco-friendly is The Zone. Not very:

While Europe may pride itself on emitting less carbon from its own territory than it did in 1990, from a consumption point of view the carbon embodied in imports from China alone all but cancels out the gain. In general the study finds that net embodied carbon imports into developed countries grew from 400m tonnes in 1990 to 1.6 billion tonnes in 2008—a growth rate faster than that of the world economy or global carbon emissions.

So. Green policies in down-turned Europe create jobs for the booming Far East.

Anyone remember when the term “being green” meant being naive..?
