Waste problem from our life style is not only a challenge, but an opportunity for us, because there are numerous carbon and carbon-related energy therein. While making efforts to meet our physical need, we shall also reach harmonious co-existence with the nature, and make us stronger. Do not think that we are more intelligent than nature and we can make nature a fool. On the contrary, we shall learn from nature. What we can change is not our ecosystem, but our industrial structure and energy supply system. There is no way to bridge the gap between current city system, low carbon economy and relevant systems unless we consider our ecosystem and environmental system, and change our current practice.
