USA clean, China dirty. right?

We all know that the Chinese are massive polluters, don't we?

(Some of us even sympathise knowing that China is playing economic 'catch-up' with the West ... when the Chinese have the same standard of living as Americans, then we can complain.)

Well, things are changing. In 2004 the U.S. was the focus of approximately 20% of total global clean energy investment and China accounted for just 3%.

By 2010, China saw 20% of that investment and the U.S. 19%.

So, China might be dirtier ... but it looks like it is trying to clean up its act.

Thanks for the post John.Now I realise why China is trying to adapt and promote "Green Productivity" across the country.
