This is pretty impressive: "the Chinese government has committed to reducing the country's carbon footprint by 40% to 45% by 2020 compared with 2005 levels."

One point is that IBM already has smart-grid, power forecasting, and polution-tracking technologies -- so it's not in the "work the kinks out" stage. What's more, whatever IBM learns in China implementations will likely be usable elsewhere.

So the Lenovo link doesn't buy IBM any goodwill in China?! 

Maybe by the time IBM irons out the kinks in this Green system, the US will have woken up and smelled the carbon and be ready to invest.
