The possibility that Newton’s third law still applies?
And that Edward de Bono was right about the Six Thinking Caps?
How we solve today’s problems may rely more on the thinking of Sun Tzu than the writings of Confucious. Is this OT? It may be if you consider China produces approx 26% of the worlds Greenhouse gas emissions with the USA not far behind at 14%.

As for China and the USA, they are locked in a long game where one has become the renewables manufacturing power house. As an aside Australia, Canada and the USA are three of the most carbon intensive nations. While China manufatures our solutions their emissions have continued to grow significantly. In a simplistic way our desire to reduce emissions has had an unintended consequence of escalating China’s emissions. Was this foreseeable? Only if some one thought to ask?
