As we all know, global warming is bringing problems to our weather pattern and climate. The ever concientious Chinese has made up their mind to make China into a "Green Country".
Howerver, one local government, namely the Department of Agriculture and Forestry of Fumin County of Yunnan Province, has decided to go one step further. Instead of planting trees that will eventually provide greenage to their mountains, it went ahead to paint mountains green for a faster result. This could save years of waiting for the trees to grow up. After spending US$60,000, one of the smaller mountains in the area was covered with green paint. But the Environmental Protectioin Agency of Kunming City is not amazed by this innovative way of greening. It is investigating the environmental compact of tons of paints on the mountain.
