A small step in the right direction for China

China plans on installing a massive wind farm that will give it 100 gigawatts of wind-generated capacity by 2020. This is good news since it'll provided a needed boost in the manufacturing capacity for wind infrastructure. Of course, it's still a minute fraction of China's overall use. But someone sitting within U.S. borders can hardly point fingers. Critics of China's rapid industrialization are, as the old Chinese saying goes, like the cowardly soldier who retreats 50 steps, only to criticize the ones who retreated 100 steps.
