The future of Earth’s environment is being determined right now in the urban industrial revolution that is transforming rapidly much of rural Asia into the heartland of the 21st century global economy. 'If you are the sort to worry at night about man-induced climate change', The Economist recently opined, 'then book a stay at any of the new high-rise hotels going up on the edge of China’s big cities — start looking for them around the third ring road'. Reflecting on how the design and construction of Asia’s cities will determine just how much global warming greenhouse gases end up in Earth’s atmosphere, The Economist pertinently asked whether Asia could 'change its habits before it is too late for all of us' (3 July 2010 p 29).
