We dont know who threw the first stone, but we do know it was us that darkened the skies
If this will bring a permanent and positive change, then we are optimistic too [https://finance.uonbi.ac.ke/index.php?q=node/777](https://finance.uonbi.ac.ke/index.php?q=node/777)
It’s long past time to stop calling biomass green. Throwing pollution into the air is not green.
Wow! This is fantastic! If they keep this up they can block out all of the suns heat and the earth will stop warming!!!! Thank you China!!
We don’t know who struck first, us or them, but we know that it was us who scorched the sky.
Take that, hippies.
Dudes tailgate is a captcha code…
This makes me wonder if power companies would go all Mr. Burns and block out the sun just to keep solar down.
There was a thread yesterday where someone was mentioning the irony of how our current coal and biomass burning pollution is actually acting as a sort of sunscreen that is keeping the earth somewhere between 1-3°C cooler than it would be if it wasn’t there. Halting those emissions right out would cause that global temp change rather rapidly and would kill a ton of wildlife.
I feel as much as the West tries, China and other countries just abuse more and more.
A few short months ago reddit assured me that China hated coal and loved the environment. I am confuse.
Anyone else trying to figure out if that thumbnail is cg or just has really weird lighting?
but remember only the west ever gets blamed for the global pollution problem. People love to ignore that the overwhelming vast majority of the global pollution comes from China and other asian nations. It’s just somehow cooler to blame it all on the west and expect the west to fix it even though nothing the west does or will do other than refusing to purchase anything from China will have any effect on global pollution.
One way to fight global warming, I guess. :))
….and America is responsible for Global whateverthefuckitistoday? Ugh!

I am not surprised at all. I spent a week in Beijing last year and only saw the sun once on Monday.
I could feel the pollution me at the end of the day and had to shower as soon as I got to the hotel each evening.
Imagine what it’s doing to Chinese people’s lungs.
Kind of a catch-22, solar panels energy production reduced by coal usage, so have to use coal to make up for the solar loss.
China just needs to use West Virgina’s Clean Coal. It causes less cancer than solar and wind power combined! And it burns clean! /s
Can we put a glass dome over China … please
It’s just sad when the whole world is working their asses off trying to minimize pollution and CO2, meanwhile China just looks at all that effort and goes “Sweet, that means we can pollute even more”.
And then you get another article like this that reads like a bad “Yo Mama” joke;
“Yo China is so polluted that their solar panels are losing 13% efficiency”
That’ll be why they started building [lots of nuclear reactors](https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/china-to-build-40-nuclear-power-plants-over-the-next-five-years-a6795401.html) over the next decade.
This is in addition to spending [$3 Billion ](https://neutronbytes.com/2018/01/07/recent-developments-in-advanced-reactors-in-china-russia/) on a Thorium-Breeding Molten Salt Reactor [TMSR](http://www.thoriumenergyworld.com/press-release/china-invests-big-in-clean-and-cheap-energy-from-thorium)
Let’s face it they need to. But what’s our excuse to still be using coal fired power stations?
#1Have Trump©️Clean Coal 4 sale!
And the Asian countries blame America? Ha.. see who’s laughing now..
It’s time to go to clean electricity generation again! Nuclear Now!
But pollution and global warming are caused by those damned straight, white males! They must pay for it!
Back in the 90s I worked a few years in the solar business in Austria, and I remember how we never even tried to sell in the capital of Vienna. At that time the reduction of solar irradiation in that urban area was said to be up to 40%, so I think these 13% are even very optimistic for Chinese urban areas today.
