China is a destructive outlier in the global energy arena. Fifty-five percent of its power still comes from coal, and 17% comes from hydroelectric dams that generate as much geostrategic conflict as they do power. On the other hand, they are attempting to lead the world in electric vehicles and nuclear power. So how does the Chinese Communist Party plan to keep this strategy moving forward as  the countries demands skyrocket?

For the inaugural episode of our new "Insider Interviews," host Miles Yu is joined by Hudson Senior Fellow Thomas Duesterberg to provide answers from his report on China's historical water struggles and solutions.
