via Is China behind the threat to African wildlife? – People’s Daily Online.

As Chinese prosperity increases, citizens of other countries will become envious and try to pick holes in China’s way of life, like for example,  traditional Chinese medicine.

I am a passionate animal rights supporter, perhaps not quite an activist. However, on my travels I have identified, for example, how China takes great national pride in looking after her pandas; meanwhile, I sadly must conclude that Malaysia has neglected her bio-diversity in favor of becoming a global player in palm-oil production.

Any thoughts on protecting wildlife in Afica?

via China’s friends will increase with growth – People’s Daily Online.

Of course, with friendship comes geopolitical leverage.

Sadly, it seems that David Cameron has permanently blotted his copy book and is banned from the “playground”. I fear that the UK will need to wait for David Cameron’s successor to buddy up to China. Also part of me wonders whether UK drugs giant GSK has been targeted in China because of Cameron? Meanwhile, China’s trade with Germany reaches new records, on the strength of friendship, and common understanding.

Any thoughts?
