China Will Suck the West Dry to Feed the East
The Beijing government recently announced a 1 trillion yuan ($163 billion) plan to clean up its deadly and expensive air pollution problem. Its success hinges mainly on sharp cuts in regional coal consumption. + But China still has to keep the lights on somehow. Its solution? Synthetic natural gas (SNG) converted from coal.
