Well, good!

Local clean energy buff Tom Noyes is concerned that the U.S. is falling behind China in investing in clean energy:

For the first time, China led the United States and other G-20 members in 2009 clean energy investments and finance, according to data released today by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Last year, China invested $34.6 billion in the clean energy economy – nearly double the United States’ total of $18.6 billion.

Well, isn't that a good thing? After all, when's the last time you saw an American city have a pollution problem like this? Or this? Or this? Or see an American have to wear this?

China needs to spend more than us. They have a bigger pollution problem! Eleven of the twenty worst polluted cities on the planet are in China, and it leads the world in CO2 emissions.
