According to this article, Chinese air pollution kills hundreds of thousands every year. While it is always nice to see efforts toward harnessing solar power...........where is the energy storage for when the sun is not shining? This type of hype never informs people that such infrastructure can only supplement the grid until we can store energy in a truly colossal way.

    I've seen a video about their efforts to lessen their pollution. I remembered they had an incident where they had a very polluted air. even some of them were persuaded to buy "clean air in a can"
