Video: China Leading the Green Economy while America's Democracy is Being Undermined

America could be screwed in the 21st century according to US Energy secretary Steven Chu. China is responsible for more than 20 percent of high tech exports while the US is responsible for 15 percent. China is the leader in clean and efficient travel with almost 6 thousand miles of high speed rail under construction while the US has none. China is also bettering America when it comes to innovation. Even American renewable energy firms are setting up in China. Republicans in Congress do not believe in the science behind global warming and this is undermining America's international competitiveness. As China builds its green economy, in the US, democracy is being undermined by laws which give corporations the same rights as people.
