Visualizing Chinese Energy

Apropos of last week’s post on US Energy Research Dollars, we present another WellHome that gives us a look at China’s energy use.

As the fastest growing segment of the developing world, China’s current and future energy usage and resulting environmental impact cannot be understated. The infographic below gives an outline of the current state of China’s energy consumption, generation, and their use of renewable sources of energy. Understanding the impact of our own energy usage is essential, but it is important to remember that we all share the same planet. China’s impact on the environment effects us all. Keeping abreast of statistics like these can help us all to hold the world accountable for their impact on the environment.
