Tianjin Eco-City in China looks is being touted as a model for sustainable living in this rapidly urbanizing and heavily polluted country, whose congested, smog-choked cities are becoming increasingly unlivable.

Live long and prosper

I couldn't view the video - but do know that about 30+ years ago, internationally people woke up to the vital functions provided by wetlands. Or, should I have said, MOST people.

Where I live, about 55km north of Vancouver, BC, the municipality somehow managed to approve the development of new accommodation by reclaiming some land on the edge of the tidal wetland - so these environmental disasters are still taking place in North America.

Our protective environmental laws have only recently been further downgraded by the Conservative Govt because that will make it easier to walk over concerned citizens and First Nations peoples and go ahead with the planned oil pipeline from the tar sands.

Considering China is the manufacturing hub of the world, it has certainly landed up with the worst possible pollution problems in the world. That is to be expected. What is heartening, however, is that they do have a long-term view and continue to make extensive investments in environmental protection and greening their desert areas.

We have to wait for our recycling stuff to be taken away once a fortnight.
Good on the Chinese. I should like to live in an eco-city in Australia.

Very good hope, marshes taken into consideration, I particularly liked the recycling going along pipes to central point,USA could learn a lot from this, also Europe & even parts of Africa

Rising from the marshes? How much wetland protection? Very worrying...
