Notes: See "China Leading Global Race to Make Clean Energy," The New York Times, January 30, 2010
"Tianjin, China — China vaulted past competitors...last year to become the world's largest maker of wind turbines... China has also leapfrogged the West in the last two years to emerge as the world's largest manufacturer of solar panels...
These efforts to dominate renewable energy technologies raise the prospect that the West may someday trade its dependence on oil from the Mideast for a reliance on solar panels, wind turbines and other gear manufactured in China."
