Coal in Asia


John Shanahan, civil engineer, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Despite all who claim that they know what is best for the entire world and want/demand that everyone follow their ideas for a "perfect" environment, despite their claims that they can control Earth's climate, people in the real world will most likely use energy sources that are readily available, steady, controllable, lower cost and don’t pollute the environment excessively. That means hydro-electric where available, as clean as economically feasible fossil fuels and well managed nuclear power. Countries that choose to go with very low energy density, variable, unpredictable "renewables" will either come back to energy reality sometime or face fading economic strength and global irrelevance.
