China and Coal

Post by JoelUpchurch » Jan 14, 2010 11:40 am

I read an interesting article in the Financial Times today about China has started importing some coal.

The quantities are small, but I think that this will increase their push for nuclear power.

That graph is out of date- it doesn't have China's emissions exceeding those of the USA till 2017, but the lead passed to China a year or more ago.
