Even as China grudgingly accepts the mantle of the biggest energy consumer, investment dollars are being poured into renewable energy research. China has already surpassed the United States as the largest producer of clean energy, whether it be hydro, wind, solar, or nuclear.How much you want to bet that wind and solar account for less than 5% of the "clean" energy China produces, with nuke plants and Three Gorges accounting for the rest? There's nothing "clean" about Three Gorges. And Tom Friedman is still an idiot.
