China’s spending on renewable energy soars

While China is labeled as the world's biggest polluter,
they seem to be pursuing alternative energy vigorously !!

I would bet they have a good way to keep the corruption at a minimum too !!
(unlike the U.S. programs !)

The Raw Story

World’s biggest polluter spends £4bn a year on wind and solar power generation in single region as it aims to cut fossil fuel use.

The remote, wind-blasted desert of northwestern Gansu could be the most unloved, environmentally abused corner of China. It is home to the country’s first oilfield and several of the coalmines and steel factories that have contributed to China’s notoriety as the planet’s biggest polluter and carbon dioxide emitter.

But in the past few years, the landscape has started to undergo a transformation as Gansu has moved to the frontline of government efforts to reinvent China’s economy with a massive investment in renewable energy.

China in the Wind

I would speculate that the U.S. will be buying their technology
