The new leader, Li Keqiang, has certainly stated a worthwhile list of goals. And even if he does not succeed in getting rid of corruption and reducing pollution, if the growth goal is met there will be a nation that has a lot of folks with money to spend and the desire for a bit more personal freedom than that government could afford to give them. But I wish the people of China a period of peace and growth, so they can be our strong allies.

I was in Shanghai for a month 5 years ago. The pollution was like NYC in the 1960's, and much less than LA then. We are not that far removed.

limiting car ownership can be done by enforcing rigid emission laws (that effectively raise the price). Then you have a double whammy. With only 1% of power being generated by nukes, that seems like another area of growth...

The growing number of cars is a problem, but then, why we see PM2.5 level going up during the night when the traffic is supposed to be light? The culprit, I suspect, is coals.

I would rather that the Chinese gov't be corrupt business men than power-mad, paranoid sociopaths. All things considered, the quality of Chinese governance and civil rights are pretty good by third-world standards.
