History repeating itself?

From BBC News:

China has overtaken the US in the consumption of basic agricultural and industrial goods, a survey has found.
With a booming economy and 1.3bn people, it is now the world's largest consumer of grain, meat, coal and steel, said the Earth Policy Institute.

But China's insatiable demands are putting ever more pressure on the country's natural resources.

Interesting. If there were only some way we could use that to our advantage. Too bad no one's every though of a way to use economics as a weapon to remove an oppressive, totalitarian regime.
