Climate change a ‘golden opportunity’

China and the UK have a golden opportunity to embrace and benefit from the challenges posed by global warming, China Daily reported the British foreign secretary as saying over the weekend.
Margaret Beckett was in China to talk about the future of the global environment and to usher in a new era of closer economic, political and technological cooperation between the two countries, said the report.
"China and Britain are two of the world’s leading economies and we believe that both countries can continue to grow without destroying the resources required for future growth," Beckett said.
"We see a strategy partnership between the UK and China and Chinese cities, Guangzhou especially, as the way to tackle the many issues we face, and by working together we can make the most of the opportunities of the future.”
