Can China Catch a Cool Breeze?
By Christian Parenti
On a range of seaside mountains between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, two
visions of China's future development stand side by side. The slope of
the mountains is busy with construction workers building roads and swank
modern trophy homes, each with a two-car garage. The valley below is
carpeted with acres of bright green chemical-fed golf courses, their
sand traps winking up in playful floral patterns. This is the future as
California-style, auto-based sprawl.
On the ridgeline above this stands the other vision: four tall wind
turbines face the South China Sea, receiving the steady ocean breeze.
The turbines of the Da Mei Sha wind farm are part of the country's
rapidly rising renewable energy sector. This small wind farm represents
an alternate future: that of China as a green technology giant.
