    Because there's no money to be made out of it there.

    china hasn't bowed out of the climate change agreements ,and has done a large amount of work in combating climate change ,she should protest outside the UN headquarter for America's unwillingness to honor its commitment ,because the US hasn't done little to cope with the climate change ,

    Greta is a puppet of the Left.  Why do you think she was given the opportunity to speak to the United Nations?  What other child has ever been given that opportunity?  Nobody messes with China.

    Moronic anti-American leftist alarmists always make excuses for those that already suppress their populations like they can only dream to.  Greta is a brain-dead leftist that belongs to a cult that virtue signals about caring about the planet as if those that don't support giving all money and freedom to elitists want to destroy the planet.  All these zealots really care about is their cult and their cult is anti-freedom and anti-capitalist.  The leader of freedom and free markets in the US so that is where Greta aims her ire.  Look at the leadership of the left, AOC a bartender, Greta a teenager, Stretch Pelosi, Corrupt Biden...it is a veritable conga line out of the Star Wars bar scene.

    I love it, China is actively pursue a plan to clean up whatever. BS. Their overall infrastructure isn't that old, they are using an all of the above manner to fulfill what they see is, their energy needs of the future. They are not cleaning up or modifying existing power plants, while it is true they are incorporating cleaner tech, they are still building and securing fossil fuel supplies and plants, including new coal burning plants. It's just that supposedly, those will be cleaner. It's a frigging crock, those who believe they are cleaning anything up. Their plan, anything new is up to today's tech and they will just continue to use the old, until they die. There is no intentional effort to clean up or modify anything.

    Dunno. But knowledgeable people know and understand that China acknowledges they are the number one polluter and they're trying to do something about it. For one thing, unlike Trump's USA, China belongs to the Paris Agreement. [See source.]

    For another they are focusing on ridding fossil fuel burners, especially coal burners. Back in 1996 I spent some time in China and one of the first things I noticed is that there is the distinct smell of coal burning in the air everywhere. It was so bad then that you could actually smell China before seeing it when approaching Shanghai by cruise ship.

    Maybe it's improved by now, but on seeing on TV so many Chinese wearing face masks in the streets I doubt that it has improved. Not because they aren't trying but because the problem is so huge and overwhelming.
