During a Jan 13, 2018, Russel Brand interview of Professor Brian Cox of Manchester University, England (link immediately below), Cox mentioned that he had been in China recently; and, was told by someone in the Chinese government that they had recently completely canceled plans for 150 coal fired plants, in favor of solar energy. This was mentioned as one reason why China will soon be eating the U.S.'s lunch.
