The phrase “Chinese Solar Farm” is something that many environmentalists never expected to hear. There is now a massive development in Longyangxia and more on the way. The farm sits behind a big poster of the Chinese president, Xi Jinping with the slogan “Promote green development! Develop clean energy!”
It is an impressive 27 sq./km solar farm that signals a significant change in attitudes in China. They want to help the fight against global warming after decades of bad decisions, emissions and refusals to sign treaties.
The question is, why now? What has to trigger this new change in attitude and such a bold exclamation of promotion and development? Is it money, environmental pressure, Trump or something else?
This new solar farm is a big step forward for China, who once turned their backs entirely on the prospect.
