Wait… Is China Really the Leader in Green Energy?

With plans to pull out of the Paris climate deal, the US is quickly falling behind in the race for clean energy. So who’s winning?

  1. Who invented solar technology. I believe it's Americans that patent did it that's a two percent efficient cell, technology has been on the rise with many people across many countries ;have been involved! it should be considered open technology! The lack of opportunity in solar expansion has been in storage at the local level ; grid tie options are expensive and you don't have power without input waveform to follow. now to the Paris accord … I'm not upset the US didn't sign on speak to the real deal. Climate science in the United States is Geo political it's about taxing us to fart , because somehow that will save the environment governments can't solve any one particular problem they will never solve any problem because why would we kill the cash cow… This is the same people governments who agreed to burn fossil fuel's for any nation to use nuclear fuels by treaty which led do use of high sulfur coal….

  2. You glossed over China's massive plans for building coal fired power plants. The Montreal Protocols worked because they applied equally to everyone, as opposed to Kyoto and Paris. Those seem to be more about massive wealth transfers than actually dealing with the problem.

  3. Unfortunately Americans no longer want to look forward. Coal/fossil fuels are a dead technology. We can either get ahead of the curve, retrain those workers, and restructure our economy to make a profit off renewables or we can get left behind and suffer the consequences.

  4. So communist goverment of china say something and you believe all of it, like if you didnt know who we are talking abount. And USA is bad of course because they dont make such claims. Sure.

  5. No one who have looked the energy consumption numbers of China will think solar and wind will take a significant potion of future China energy. The numbers just don't add up. China will consum more coal and natural gas, there is no going around it. And the biggest problem solar and wind face is energy storage. And most of the top battery makers are in US, like Tesla.

  6. I think it’s Norway. (I haven’t watched the whole video, so tell me if I’m wrong.)

  7. China leads in coal consumption, but that's because they leads in population. If you check energy consumption per capita, China can't hold the candle to US

  8. China didn't pursue green energy because it's an "economic opportunity." They do it because they feel morally obligated to keep the environment clean. Burning coal pollutes the air but to be frank it wouldn't bother the rich and the powerful who all get mansions in places with clean air. Just like in the U.S., the rich executives and politicians don't give a sh*t if fracking pollutes the water since it doesn't affect them. Capitalism is the problem of America.

  9. Its a tragic irony that Houston, Texas, the oil capital of the world, got drowned with 49 to 50 inches of rain because Hurricane Harvey got energized by greenhouse gas emission atmospheric, and ocean global warming.

  10. i'm n american and i'm triggered that china is doing something better than murica so i'm gonna do absolutely nothing about it.

  11. No. It is all communist propaganda. Think about it, why do you need to improve the air quality when you have total control of every aspect of the life of the population. It is all beautiful propaganda that makes you, and more importantly, the Chinese people, think the government is doing something.
