The world’s largest polluter is also the largest spender on Renewables

China is installing more renewable energy than anyone else on the planet. It makes sense since China is the largest country on the planet. When we add in that they are also the largest polluter on the planet (with the USA very nearby) it becomes obvious how important it is that China takes action.

Leonardo DiCaprio:

“As we all know, the United States and China are the two biggest (CO2) contributors, and I think that China has made radical movements forward as far as alternative energy and ways to be sustainable. I really think that China can be the hero of the environmental movement, they can be the hero of the climate change movement.

They have an opportunity to change the world and I have all the confidence in the world that that is their intention.”
