Episode 9

The Rhine, the Biosphere and New Energy

Looking back the history of human civilization, we have never faced such a global and unparalleled ecological crisis, but at least now the global population has begun to reflect on their behaviour, and to take the long view about the future consequences of current actions or inactions.

Humanity is a part of nature, and nothing can stop their development, but people can no longer sacrifice eco-environment and deplete unrenewable energy for their own interest, as in the past.

In other words, we can continue our current civilization, but it must be under the pre-condition of low energy-consumption and being in harmony with nature. In this episode, we will discuss about the mankind’s sustainable development style upon the background of ecological civilization, through giving several successful cases on improvement of the International Industrial Model.
