    I'm going to use this as a response to all your comments and hopefully a clarification.

    I read the section starting with

    China has taken a more positive and wiser strategy using this knowledge to buy its way down the solar industry learning curve. Rather than ask, "how long will it be before solar energy generation can match, or beat the cost of coal generation?" They asked, "how much would it cost to make solar energy less expensive than coal?  
    And ending with
    4. China then emerges as the dominant global player in solar energy technologies invented, and cultivated down the first 50 years of the learning curve by the U.S. when the new technologies were outrageously expensive. But sadly, our backwards political leaders slept, or solve themselves, and our country, out to coal industry lobbyists, and ALEC, for a few pieces of silver.  
    And that portion (especially before your update) as propaganda. I wasn't and still am not sure if this is analysis of the previous article or your own words. It sounds like from talking with you that this was more musing aloud a couple of 'what ifs'. If so I'm sorry for misunderstanding your diary.

    There's been a lot of sensationalized articles about China and how it's the next superpower and in the context of the cited portion above I thought at first your article was another one of those.

    Other than that I liked your article quite a bit. I  hope that allows you to understand where I was coming from whether I was understanding your diary or not.
