Mr. Yin has 3 dreams:

The first dream is to use the rest of my life working on green & low carbon propagandas and actions, including using P2E2(Pollution Prevention & Energy Efficiency) to prevent pollution and save energy in the greater China. Under this circumstance, I got the special name of Environmental Evangelist & Energy Facilitator in Washington DC.

  • According to my experience, it is very difficult to just do Pollution Prevention & Energy Efficiency to a single project, I then suggest we should build and retrofit a city for demonstration and we have chosen Nansha of Guangzhou City to start then duplicate the successful demonstration to the other cities, in greater China and extend to all the seventy seven developing countries. This is “The Global Model of Green & Low Carbon Actions towards Sustainable Smart City”(GLASS).
  • Under the Master Plan, set up System Integrator to control and manage the following technologies of green & low carbon:
  • Retrofit existing buildings and design new green buildings to be energy efficient
  • Energy efficiency to industries
  • Renewable and new energies
  • Circular economy
  • Cleaner production
  • Smart Grid
  • Smart Traffic
  • Electric vehicles

The second dream is make use of solar energy, wind power, geothermal and other energies to generate eletricity in the deserts and dry lands and use non-food plants ( castor, red flower, cyperus esculentus and perillaseed etc) by not using the fertile lands for food crops to plant in the deserts and drylands to use salt water and drip irrigation. After processing the above actions successfully, we can develop agriculture, husbandry, forestry, fishery and related industries in deserts and drylands in the Big North West of China. In this way, we can provide a lot of jobs, close the gap between poor and rich and create a harmonious society.

The third dream is use “Greater China Sustainable Development Council” established in Hong Kong to be the platform to unite close to 50 million overseas Chinese in the whole world to assist China to be wealthy and powerful so that we can use the great Chinese traditional culture to unite and lead the Asian countries to establish the “Asian Union” to work closely with European Union and North America Alliance to mutually repect among each other to reach sustainability with fair competition & eventually reach cosmopolitanism. The greater China comprises mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in the narrow sense, but comprises 50 million overseas Chinese in the whole world in broader sense.
