Uhmmmmm:

It’s worth taking a minute to appreciate the sheer scale of what China is doing in solar right now. In 2015, the country added more than 15 gigawatts of new solar capacity, surpassing Germany as the world’s largest solar power market. China now has 43.2 gigawatts of solar capacity, compared with38.4 gigawatts in Germany and 27.8 in the United States.

According to new projections, it seems that trend is going to continue. Under its 13th Five Year Plan, China will nearly triple solar capacity by 2020, adding 15 to 20 gigawatts of solar capacity each year for the next five years, according to Nur Bekri, director of the National Energy Administration. That will bring the country’s installed solar power to more than 140 gigawatts. To put that in context, world solar capacity topped 200 gigawatts last year and is expected to reach 321 gigawatts by the end of 2016.

Of course, China is also the world’s largest carbon emitter, it burns more coal than any other nation, and its solar capacity is only a small fraction of its total energy portfolio. What’s more, capacity does not always equate to generation: the National Energy Administration estimates that nearly one-third of solar capacity in Gansu province, and more than one-quarter in Xinjiang, was idle last year.

China’s stated goal in adding such gargantuan amounts of solar is that it wants meet its targets for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases under the Paris climate accord. But that’s far from the whole story. China’s leaders are desperate to reduce the coal-fired air pollution that renders the air in big cities like Shanghai and Beijing virtually unbreathable.

We do have to keep China in mind...

For all you climate weenies--please understand that the weather will always be under the control of Mother Nature. Plus, the Chinese don't give two shlts about clean air anyway.

winston quoting winston and including China, which to me seems to always be around waiting for our fall, if not pushing a bit...

Uh, a friendly suggestion to all posters here, from Manitou--

Don't post while your head is messed up on medication, alcohol, drugs, or brain farts.

Don't tell me you did not see the butchering done by another poster, on my quote, and the transposing of the author of the quote, and attributing it to you? Posts #19 and 24 should provide the clues.

CAPESABATM.

Gee stop crying like a baby would you... Grow a pair.. If you stop bringing me up I will keep you in the cooler, the vault and ignore you.

Isn't that what you want?

No! Not that!


Seriously, ignorance of a butchered quote is no excuse. May you live forever.
