This will upset every true American patriot.
China recently took over from the US as the world's leading polluter, now it has taken over as a bigger investor in green technology.
Will it become a bigger manufacturer and exporter of goods soon, or has that already happened as well?

No worries, Tan, with you and your countrymen doing the assembly work, it allows more Americans and Europeans to sit around all day scratching their bums.

Maybe you are right , but please try to think, 95% of China solar panels just for exporting , and in a very very lower price, could you tell me who got the profit ? I think must be the importers and the users? They have a clean environment, fresh air, crystall water and blue sky in a lower price, and I want to say China just is a workshop, all China solar industries poeple just work for Americans and Europeans.

Tan, it's the same with everything, the producer of anything earns the least money, while the middle man normally makes the most profit for doing the least work.
I'm sure there are many companies in China which do nothing but handle the goods as they pass from factory to shipper.

Earthling(please allow me to call you Earthling), now you are also agree with me: China just is a workshop of American and Europeans, we not get the profit from the solar investment now, and we do not beat any other countries. We do the most hard work, but we are not the biggest winner !
Please understand China still is a developing country, she still poor, she is not powerful, she will not threat any other countries .

Thanks, could you tell me what's the problem if China become the leader of solar industry ? Why are you so positive reaction? Do you fear a powerful China ? Do you take China as your enemy ?

Problem, what problem?
I wouldn't particularly care if China was the most powerful country in the world.
I'd be interested to know what made you think I have a problem?
