I have not been able to write anything of value for the Intranet for sometime now. However I wanted to bring to your attention the story of a simple farmer in China who has become an environmental activist. How I got to know about him is because he has agreed to provide the trust fund which the IPCC set up for fellowships on climate science, a significant sum of money. IPCC set up this fund to help create capacity in developing countries in the field of climate change. The Nobel Peace prize award money that the IPCC received has gone for this purpose, and it is nice to know that a simple farmer in China is willing to support this cause. What we are planning to do is to select deserving professionals from developing countries to undergo training in established institutions to gain expertise on various aspects of climate change. I attach a story about Wu Lihong for your information.
