Climate activist groups have said that criticizing China for its abysmal human rights record is bad for the planet — that calling out the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for its genocide against ethnic minorities might make Beijing ignore the West’s efforts to roll back CO2 emissions.

Jeff Ferry \ June 30, 2021 \ Real Clear Energy As the U.S. transitions away from fossil fuels, it’s clear that solar power will play a key role in providing clean, renewable energy for the nation. However, Washington must decide whether solar power will come from American companies and workers—or from China. That’s because years…

In Climate Push, ‘Drill, Baby, Drill’ Becomes ‘Dig, Baby, Dig.’ But China’s Doing Most of the Digging.
