 China is currently the number one producer in the world of wind and solar power.
    But don’t use it themselves. While they manufacture 80% of the world’s solar panels,
                                                                   they install less than 5% and build a new coal fired power station every week.                                                                  In 1 year they turn on more new coal powered electricity than Australia ‘s total output.
China has 19% of the world’s population, but consumes
53% of the world’s cement
48% of the world’s iron ore
47% of the world’s coal
…. and the majority of just about every other major commodity.
In 2010, China produced 11 times more steel than the United States .

      They are already the largest carbon dioxide emitter
    and their output will rise 70% by 2020 !
All you are doing is increasing our cost of living and rendering our manufacturers uncompetitive.
