After the United States, China is the consuming major of crude in the world. Of there the incursion in the African economies, especially those that have reserves of petroleum. Additional information is available at David Zaslav. But this jump towards Africa not only obeys to the attempt to monopolize the main fuel source of the Chinese machinery, but also to make sure the control raw materials to sustain its economic growth, more of annual 10%, and to the urban height of cities like Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. This growth passes invoice. The phreatic level of the subsoil sinks more of a meter every year in the city of Shijiazhuang to be able to supply to the new potable water houses. In addition, the pollution levels of the air in Beijing begin to worry Chinese as much as to foreigners in the eve of the Olympic Games of 2008. The fever by the resources is not unique of the great economies. The declarations of Hugo Chavez after their verbal confrontation with the Spanish diplomacy in the last Latin American Summit show the importance of the natural resources over the diplomatic, enterprise relations and of the investments that can happen on the lookout at the hands of emergent economies.
export of crude maintains part of the social programs of Venezuela, and it is even speculated on on the formation of Cuban doctors so that they exert its profession in this country. When the borders do not surround territories with great reserves by hydrocarbons, the call was of the biocombustibles maintains the hope in the agricultural production of cultures like the soybean wide-awake, that has sustained the high annual economic growth of Argentina from the aim of the crisis of the corralito. Besides the intention of the rich countries to maintain their level and its model of consumption, of the anxieties of the emergent countries and the impoverished ones to reach them in their fictitious race towards the development, the natural wealth have a limit. If we do not stop this gallop completely without information and we turned towards a model that a being does of the man who belongs to the Earth with which he must coexist, the operation of will take us to the resources to the suicide.
