I think the Chinese may surprise the rest of the world by going with
power satellites as a solution to their carbon and energy problems.

Power satellites are one of a very small number of solutions that
scale large  enough.  And done with propulsion lasers to get the cost
down, power satellites can provide energy cheap enough to make dollar
a gallon synthetic transportation fuel.

If you google for china india power satellites, you can see where they
announce their intent last Nov.

And in the last month Steve Nixon came up with an approach that cuts
the cost to set up the transportation infrastructure by about 2/3rds.
