Great article Tim. I was at the Vibrant Gujarat Summit in India where Andrew Robb and Sam Walsh were speakers. There was a great lineup of speakers including Ban Ki Moon, United Nations Secretary General, and Mr Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank. There was a lot of talk about renewable and sustainable energy. I heard that World Bank is no longer funding any coal projects. It is instead focused on renewable power, solar parks and farms and has provided billions of dollars to make this possible. On another note, I'm very glad that the Indian press did not comment on Andrew Robb's speech. The bragging about our increased beef exports to China was a particularly inappropriate example to be used in a Hindu state like Gujarat, where cows are sacred. They have more grace and restraint than I do. Or perhaps it's simply because there were so many great speakers to comment on. The favourite was the Prime Minister of Bhutan, Tsering Tobgay, a refreshing commentary on what is really important in a country. Instead of GDP, they measure Gross National Happiness. Interesting perspective that had all the delegates talking.
