Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Today is Blog Action Day.
I’m challenged to write something related to the environment.
Hmm…here we go.
China is serious about doing the right thing when it comes to the environment…at least in the news.
In practice…well, it remains to be seen.
Beijing will restrict exporters who violate environmental regulations from trading
Suspension of one to three years will be used to punish companies that pollute or seize environmental resources illegally.
Beijing is calling on environmental watchdogs to strengthen supervision = squeal louder and longer on offenders.
If a company offends, local departments are authorized to punish violators by withholding export-related applications.
Let’s see…a company is big enough to export. They bring jobs to the local community…they pollute. A few tree huggers cry ‘foul’ and report it to the local government who’s livelihood depends on taxes from the people and the company they are going to restrain??
Doesn’t seem likely.
But, it’s the thought that counts, right?
No! There needs to be some serious follow-through and accountability.
Beijing is trying…but it’ll take the grassroots folks to make a difference.
What do you think?
It’s Blog Action Day!
