China's Green Credentials

China is frantically building wind farms (which are usually just empty paddocks with a fence around them), solar plants (see wind farms) and "clean" coal plants - ie normal coal plants with the word clean put in front of them.

This is not exactly a massive programme of environmental reform. What it is, is a way to game the carbon credit system and do the minimum required to earn credits and kudos worldwide whilst maintaining business as usual.

In other words, China is running its same polluting primitive destructive systems, covered by a green fig leaf.
