A Prayer from Masaru Emoto.

What to Do,
Whereever you are:
Let's send our Love and Thanks to all the water on Earth.
You can use the following three-line prayer.
"Water, We Love You."
"Water, We Thank You."
"Water, We Respect You."
Then, just visualize for a few minutes that all the water on Earth is filled with beautiful golden/silver light of Love and Thanks that is flowing from the hearts of each and every one of us.

China Builds Its Dreams, and Some Fear a Bubble
By David Barboza

"The building boom is a principal reason that China is searching around the world for energy and natural resources: it needs the raw material to build new cities, and the energy to power them. That is helping drive up world commodity prices and threatening global environmental damage."

Neutopia's comment: If China doesn't develop an alternative vision to housing and continues to build unsustainably to catch up with the West, then we have little future as the hungry dragon devours the world's ecology. Arcology New Orleans could give China a new model of development.
