Hm? Do explain.

China has been unfairly subsidizing things in there own country, this included. This makes it hard for companies to compete here for work, because China can do whatever it takes to undercut our own companies, making getting jobs here that much harder. That needs to stop, and maybe the WTO will help. Just maybe.

Although my opinion of China is very negative.

Hm. I am not sure, but I think a country with 1.3 billion people shifting towards a greener industry might be more important for the planet than another country with 300 million people saving more profits and/or jobs. In any case, I like how the article at S&R that I linked parsed the whole argument of free trade vs protectionism vs environmentalism.

The article doesn’t delve into the key issue here, which is not that China subsidizes its wind power industry, but that the subsidies are only available to companies that use Chinese parts. This appears to be a violation of WTO rules. And the fact that China is becoming a wind technology exporter makes this a much more serious issue as export subsidies are (for the most part outside of agriculture) banned.

Exactly. For the sake of disclosure, I will admit to hating the government of Mainland China for their treatment of not only the Tibetans, but the Uighurs as well. I want their government to fall.
