This will be a short post.  Look at this link.  Then look at this link.  What’s wrong with this picture?  In case that didn’t do it.

“China plans to dramatically increase its use of wind and solar power, aiming to generate up to one fifth of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, a senior official told Britain’s Guardian newspaper.”

“Senate Democrats have their work cut out for them to raise renewable electricity standards higher than 15 percent despite pressure from environmental and renewable energy lobbyists, and even some members of their own party.”

Do we want to export wind turbines and solar panels, or do we want to import them from China?  Global warming aside, that is the economic question at hand, and it will decide who the global superpower in 2050 is.
