Chinese Americans

Chinese Americans

A poll was conducted of 354 Chinese Americans who were chosen at random nationwide by from a surname list.

They were asked a series of questions about their attitudes toward China and their views on China and US-China Relations.

Question 20:

Does China’s economic/industrial growth hurt the global environment?

Chinese-Americans were split on this one with 48% thinking China is hurting the global (physical) environment and 46% thinking it does NOT hurt the environment.

The general public has a completely different take with 56% thinking China is doing some global damage compared to 35% who think it is not.

With 1.3 billion people suddenly starting to eat away at our globe, it can’t help but have a negative impact. Yet the earth is alive and the creator has designed it to adapt.

I am NOT a tree hugger. I do believe the earth has been entrusted to us and we ought to be good stewards. When one fifth of the world suddenly starts consuming a greater amount of the world’s resources, it must have somewhat of a negative impact…at least until the earth has time to adapt.

What do you think?

These survey results were taken from a poll conducted by the Committee of 100.

The Committee of 100 is a national, nonpartisan organization composed of prominent American citizens of Chinese descent.  The members of this group pool their resources to address important issues that concern the Chinese/American community but, Imho, more importantly, foster better US-Greater China relations.

Recently, this group tasked the polling firm ZOGBY to conduct an extensive survey of American Attitudes Toward China.

They polled the General Population (General Public) as well as Chinese Americans. Business leaders, Opinion leaders and Congressional staffers, subsets of the general public were also polled.

In keeping with the Committee of 100 ideas, I hope it will create discussion and be used to better understand U.S.-China relations and help those concerned to formulate recommendations on how to improve relationships between these two great countries.
