Oops, sorry for the poor wording. I meant the "Chinese elite" of course. Since it is the elite that is pushing for electric cars and clean energy, not the "people".
So, back to the point, why do you think that the elite understands that pollution is a problem when it comes to cars and is aggressively pushing toward less emissions there, but not when it comes to power plants?
