Green Money, Green Issues, and China

The World After the 2008 US Presidential Election

By Richard C. Cook

Whatever agreements US bankers and politicians may once have made with China for them to take
over US manufacturing while the nation lived off financial profits have grievously backfired.

Solving this conflict with China peacefully may be the next president’s greatest challenge.


Tell this to the CEO of WalMart! That’s the economic issue, but there are other concerns of note such as:

 ‘Living on Earth’ which is on my radio now with a feature about manufacturing in China and a consumer panel that was held with Wal-Mart in attendance.

It costs more to be cleaner! Now they say they want to know what actually goes into Chinese products. Melamine is the most famous additive in the news of late, but are there more we should know about?

This is not the first time WalMart has promised to “clean up its act”…read the transcript or listen at:


Other environmental features of today’s LOE include:

‘Obama’s Pledge’ (yes he can)

‘Green Hospitals’ (medical waste incinerators, IV drips dripping carcenogens into patients’ veins bwo chemicals in plastics, toxic Mercury from thermometers, etc – hospitals are waking up to the harm they’ve been causing and about time)

‘Center for American Progress’ (CAP – a Washington think tank with green on its mind and Obama soon in the White House)

and last, but with America’s Thanksgiving Day on the calendar, certainly not least:

‘Heritage Turkeys’ (reviving interest in flavorful ‘rea’ American turkeys – ‘Butterball’ beware!)

No, I’m not giving you the links for all these interviews, but you’ll easily find them with one click. And, for the pod people among us, you may wish to sign up for LOE’s podcasts here:

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
