Last week, The New York Times front page described the Trump administration's repeal of the Clean Power Plan, the Obama administration's attempt to slash carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.That's one of the reasons why China, which suffers over 1 million deaths a year because of poor air quality, is making huge investments in clean energy.According to a recent report from the U.N., China invested $78.3 billion in renewable energy last year – almost twice as much as the United States.In 2016, more than twice as many were sold in China as in the United States, an astonishing catch-up for a country that had almost no such technologies 10 years ago. China's leaders have let it be known that by 2025 they want 20 percent of all new cars sold in China to be powered by alternative fuels. All of this has already translated into jobs, "big league" as Trump might say: 3.6 million people are already working in the renewable energy sector in China, compared with 777,000 in America.
