How China’s Solar Domination Challenges the World
The manufacturing of solar cells is an energy- and labor-intensive process. That’s why 80 percent of the world’s solar panels are made in the coal-rich Xinjiang region of China, which is not only home to the world’s two biggest coal-fired power plants but also ground zero of the CCP’s genocide of the Uyghurs, who are used as slave labor.
As we have witnessed recently at the gas pump, energy security is national security. Wars are started and lost because of energy. Unless drastic action is taken, we will find ourselves at China’s mercy for our energy needs, just as Germany is at Russia’s.
