 “Is Northeast Asia the source of the climate crisis, or the solution?”

Northeast Asia has undergone a tremendous transformation over the last fifty years which is still heralded as an economic miracle. But the devastating impact of climate change suggests that a far different narrative will emerge in the years ahead. Many are concerned that the awareness of climate change remains low in the region and that reliance on smokestack industries and a consumption culture will have serious impact.

But there are signs that China is moving more quickly to address the environmental crisis than any other country in the world, and because of the scale of China’s economy, the impact will be considerable. Similar, if less ambitious, efforts are being made in Korea and Japan.

Moreover, China, Japan and Korea have a tremendous tradition of sophisticated organic farming and recycling which offers our future some hope. The American professor F. H. King detailed Asia’s achievements in his book Farmers of Forty Centuries back in 1909, suggesting that the West should learn from China. Sadly, the opposite has taken place.
