Making the environment greener?

It seems that China is painting a mountain side green. Seriously. Why? Well, the local villagers and the workers doing the painting doesn't know why, but there is some speculation.
Some villagers believed Fumin county officials were attempting to change the area's feng shui - the ancient Chinese belief of harmonising the physical environment for maximum health and financial benefit.

If that's true, that's some major woo going on.

The alternative explanaition is nearly as depressing.
Others suggested it was an unusual attempt to "green" the area in keeping with calls for more attention to the environment.

I'm sure that some environmentalists feel like crying if this is true, especially given the cost of the painting could easily cover planting of enough real trees and vegetation to cover the area.
