The rise of China's low-carbon energy

Bloomberg reports that by 2030, China's low-carbon capacity is expected to be larger than the entire U.S. power grid. So, in 15 years, China will surpass the US in the production of low-carbon power sources. By 2030, China will produce enough low-carbon power sources to power the entire US. 

This report is not just surprising because of the speed with which China can develop their low-carbon power sources, but also disturbing because of the US inability to do so. The US should be able to take the lead on this, but yet it's not happening. How sad is that?
