It is said in China that the Chinese will eat anything that moves.

Unfortunately garbage won't move otherwise problem solved.

Sad for Red China ... LOL

China is now No. 1 in the world in solar, wind, hydro power, and geothermal energy. Also, one of the leaders in electric car and bus production. Shenzhen's BYD is one such leading producer.

That's just FACT, do your Google search.

Please, let's be nice.:)
The China I know does suffer a garbage problem, but this problem is unevenly distributed, as is green energy technology.

And I believe China is #8 in solar energy use.
