In Beijing, homes, businesses and hospitals across northern China are running short on natural gas. In the chemical industry, the spandex supply is getting tight.
More then a decade ago, China began moving into natural gas and less reliant on coal, a dirtier form of energy.
Even as demands from the public to clean up the smoggy skies over China, the shift has gone awry.
In the midst of an energy squeeze, the Chinese must turn back on the coal plants in the southeastern parts of China so that schools, hospitals and homes can have heat.
China has a two fold problem, it’s massive population and it’s dirty skies and environment.
The main crux of this article, however, is that if China’s government did to it’s coal plants what Obama did too ours, China would be at the mercy of the weather and would have no options other then to hope for the best.
Obama/Clinton wanted nothing better then to put coal out of business in the U.S.. Not only did Obama prevent coal from being used in this Country, he prevented it from being exported, a true crime by the way.
You need all forms of energy sources and until one is invented, or one becomes more efficient then coal and can be mass produced at a cheap rate, ( do not forget, without coal energy prices would sore 40%), then you need coal to burn.
You cannot have short sighted politicians, and again in Obama’s case, unqualified leaders who do not know how to run things in general, telling us how we can and cannot run energy sources. If you do not like coal, understand what disaster this could have been for China without coal.
