Coal has been the primary fuel behind China’s economic growth over the last decade, growing 10 percent per year and providing three quarters of the nation’s primary energy supply. Like China’s economy, coal’s use, sale and broader impacts are also dynamic, changing with technology and spurring policy interventions. Currently, China’s coal sector from mine to boiler is undergoing a massive consolidation designed to increase efficiency. Coal’s supreme position in the energy mix appears to be unassailable.

However, scratch deeper and challenges begin to surface. Increasingly visible health and environmental damages are pushing localities to cap coal use. Large power plants with greater minimum outputs are shackling an evolving power grid trying to accommodate new energy sources. Further centralization of ownership is rekindling decade-old political discussions about power sector deregulation and reform.

This unique set of concerns begs the question: how long will coal remain king in China’s energy mix?

it shows how desperate they are to deny the truth in China, that they need to stop polluting so much as they're killing themselves
Putting a smiley face on doesn't make the problem go away, but that insane 'news' from them is because if the reporters were to complain they'd be put in prison and replaced

It's so bad that that it even sometimes affects California!

"Human life has no value to the communist Chinese."

The care about their lives as much as we do, and love their country and its people.

China used to try to live in harmony with nature until Chairman Mao's war on nature.

They are desperately trying to outrun a destructive revolution by bringing income and modernity to as many of their population as possible.

China is desperate as hell they can keep up with this...
