 Asia-Pacific Symposium on Sustainable Food Production, Income Generation and Consumer Protection
Green food development had three goals: (a) to protect the agro-ecological environment, (b) to satisfy the growing demand of urban and rural people for better food, and (c) to narrow the gap between producers, the food industry and consumers.
Influenced by the idea of sustainable development, China in 1989 proposed the development of “green food”, which referred to uncontaminated, safe and healthy food of good quality which was produced by specific methods, certified by a designated organization and sold under the green food label.
The agricultural modernization drive in many industrialized countries in the 1940s and the “green revolution” in the developing countries in the 1960s had enormously augmented the global food supply situation, although it had also created negative effects such as soil erosion, environmental and food pollution, indebtedness and poverty, trade discrimination, and imbalanced regional development.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Green explained that he had seen the popular media "glorifying the homosexual lifestyle" and felt "burdened” to say something about it.
Green had told a small congregation on the Swedish island of Oland that homosexuals were “a deep cancer tumor on all society” and added that Sweden faced a natural disaster if the nation persisted in its leniency toward them, according to the Associated Press.
In February, the court threw out the case, saying that Green should not be imprisoned because it’s not illegal to preach about a person’s interpretation of the Bible.
