British eco-cities

The First British eco-city - self-sustaining zero carbon new town - is to be created - by Arup Engineering.

Where?

China.

I guess the planet's atmosphere doesn't mind where it happens if the carbon's saved somewhere.

But if Arup can do it in China, why doesn't Prescott let them design his so-called 'sustainable communities' in England?

According to the Observer, the eco-cities are regarded both as a prototype for urban living in over-populated and polluted environments and as a magnet for investment funds into the rapidly growing Chinese economy.
