They're actually manufacturing (and installing) huge amounts of wind and solar — It's just that they haven't actually done so at a pace sufficient to start displacing coal burning.

There are a lot of other things China does, including:

  • Free/cheap land for factories
  • Assurances that a market will be available for the resulting product
  • Low-interest loans to businesses in favored industries
  • Grants to businesses in favored industries
  • Assurances that a market for the product will exist
  • Barriers to purchasing from abroad

Some of these can be replicated in the west without impinging on freedom in any kind of meaningful way

For 50 Republicans and about three Democrats in the Senate.

The Republicans are the big problem here.

The governor will veto this if this actually reaches her, but they're tell us what they will do if we give them the power to.

That's a very very tiny part of the problem for fireflies
