This seems like good news overall. Sure, the United States may devolve into a third-world country, but at least world’s current most populous country and the 21st Century’s most important economy — China — is taking the lead in sparking a clean energy revolution. This has the potential to improve the quality of lives of billions around the world in the next few decades, and stave off catastrophic environmental outcomes.

It’s unfortunate that the United States is going to get left in the dust, but that is more an indictment of a system of government that puts a bunch of regressive morons and greedy sociopaths in charge than it is of the morons and sociopaths themselves.

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist.
