60 Seconds over Sinoland, this is Jeff J. Brown reporting from Shenzhen.
In 2018, China is going to plant forests covering an area the equivalent to the size of the country of Ireland – in one year. This is not new. I wrote about this in The China Trilogy. They have been planting thousands and thousands of square kilometers of forest, since liberation in 1949.
The Ministry of Forestry is saying cooperation between government and social capital will be put on the priority list. Of course, social capital being networks of people doing good works for humanity. This country, the size of the United States or Canada is going to have 26 percent of its surface area in forest, with 1.4 billion people, by 2035. Unbelievable! Socialism is working in China, check it out!

Postscript: The China Daily article could have also used Taiwan as a point of reference. Baba Beijing is going to plant almost two Taiwan’s in forests in 2018, which really puts this tiny island province in better perspective (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/01/13/taiwanese-separatists-are-so-sino-screwed-one-way-or-another-china-rising-radio-sinoland-181114/).
