More on Chinese Unrest

Following up on the little flare-up in China, Anne-Marie Slaughter’s source in China writes:

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has watched the “color revolutions” in Georgia (rose), the Ukraine (orange), Azerbaijan (rose/orange), and elsewhere with great trepidation. But if such an event were to happen here it is unlikely to come in the warm hues favored in the former Soviet bloc, and it would certainly not be red like the revolution of 50 years ago. No, the revolution the CCP is increasingly worried about is green.

More on China and the environment follows. It’s interesting stuff.

P.S. In good ol’ Civilization IV the ultimate economic system is… environmentalism. At first I thought that was odd, but upon reflection it might just be prescient.
