renewable energy


Donald Trump sees the future in coal. China sees the future in renewables. Who’s making the safer bet?

China says it'll invest an additional $361 billion in renewable energy projects by 2020, and in the process create 13 million new jobs. The move's in sharp contrast to Donald Trump's promise to reinvigorate the coal industry in the US. Mary Kay Magistad of The World's "Whose Century Is It?" podcast says China seems to have a clearer vision of the future.


The Hillary Clinton campaign goes solar

Democratic Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has pledged to create and expand market-based incentives to boost renewable energy in the US, as part of her fight against global warming. Her plan includes installing half a billion solar panels in her first four years in office and producing a third of all US electric power from renewable sources by 2027.
