From the article:
'NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
China retook its top spot as global leader in the clean energy race, attracting nearly twice the green energy investment dollars last year as the United States did.
Investors plowed $65 billion into Chinese wind farms, solar panel arrays and other clean energy projects in 2012, a 20% increase over the year prior, according to a report released Wednesday by Pew Charitable Trusts and Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The numbers reflect only private investments in power projects, and do not include government subsidies or R&D money.

China's total made it the world's top destination for green energy investments in 2012, a position it held in 2009 and 2010 but lost to the United States in 2011.
In the United States, green energy investments last year plummeted 37% to $35.6 billion, although the country still came in second worldwide.'

One good thing for China. They are the world's leader in pollution.
