Chinese leaders embrace Rifkin's 3rd Industrial Revolution

Balder posted this link at IPS, which notes the incoming Chinese premier is a fan of Rifkin. Which led me to search and find this story, noting

"that members of the twenty-four person Politburo and senior party officials are reading and actively discussing Jeremy Rifkin’s New York Times bestselling book, The Third Industrial Revolution, on the eve of the National Party Congress on November 8th that will usher in the new leadership of China- see attached article from the November 3rd edition of The London Times. According to The Times of London, the Chinese leadership is taking up Rifkin’s vision of linking internet technology with renewable energies, to prepare China for a dramatic shift into a sustainable post-carbon Third Industrial Revolution economy in the 21st century."

Encouraging indeed, since China is the world leader of anthropocentric CO2 emissions.
