Electricity and China won.

 

China has 421,000 electric buses. The United States has 300.

 

P.S. As backwards as the US has become, not sure anyone even knew there was a war.

No, electric buses.

Where does the electricity come from? (Hint: the vast majority is produced from coal.)

You posted too fast to have read those links. Hint: someday the vast, vast, vast majority is going to come from solar and other renewable energy sources. In China...

Short, short, short coal every chance you get and defend it no more.

Your own link states the fact that China's electricity production is two thirds fuelled by coal. I had already known of a figure in the 70% range. This is probably a good time to mention that solar panel production involves many environmentally nasty processes which is precisely why it happens predominantly in China where environmental standards are lax.
