Al Gore blogs:

China continues to show it is taking green energy production seriously:
“China Huaneng Group, the nation’s biggest power generator, targets a capacity to produce about 35 percent of its electricity from clean energy by 2020 as the country seeks to cut pollution, President Cao Peixi said.”

Odd. Does this mean Al Gore has switched his stance on clean coal and it’s no longer like a “healthy cigarette?”
