The Breakthrough Institute: CBS Evening News on China’s Lead in the Clean Energy Race

The CBS Evening News has profiled the U.S. position in the global clean energy race for a segment called, “Where America Stands,” and unsurprisingly, America stands behind China and other nations in developing and producing the technologies that will underpin the tremendous growth of the global clean energy sector over the coming decades.

CBS correspondent Celia Hatton reports, “China is the country cashing in on the green revolution.” The video echoes the findings of a recent report on clean tech competitiveness by Breakthrough Institute and the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, “Rising Tigers, Sleeping Giant,” which notes that other countries have surpassed the United States in the production of virtually all clean energy technologies, from solar and wind, to nuclear and high-speed rail.
