China's going to start focusing on building a lot of wind power generation. Wonder when the first environmental complaints about those farms of windmills will start up. "Last chance to see Yu Long Snow Mountain before it turns into a wind farm."
Another interesting tidbit:
Apparently, the vacuum tube style of heater that's popular in Xianggelila are actually pretty technologically advanced, for water heaters. Unfortunately, the new government mandated "tibetan style" building style in the old town doesn't have a flat roof to put those things on. I guess it would ruin pictures of the old town from the nearby hills to have water heaters on the roofs.
