For generations, coal has been the backbone of West Virginia, until jobs were wiped out by the tens of thousands. While some are counting on promises made to bring coal back, a new generation is embracing the next opportunity: green energy. But in the nationwide race to dominate renewable power production, West Virginia's deeply rooted tensions and interests may leave its workers behind.

Both are essential for industrial development, revenue, construction material and food. However, the only way to bring these materials to the masses is to transport them down the mountains' crumbling cliff sides.

America, under President Donald Trump, is securing its “energy independence” with oil and gas. But unlike fossil fuels, renewables will not increase global warming —and China is moving fast. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Oil moves the world around and creates powerful countries. Oil is such a vital commodity that it provoked wars throughout the 20th century. The few countries that produce it, try to keep control of it to ensure its riches stay at home. Those who do not have it, strive to get it. In the 1930s Saudi Arabia was one of the poorest countries in the world but the discovery of oil transformed it and Saudi Arabia has amassed $515.6 billion in sovereign wealth funds. It has become the linchpin of a powerful cartel that sometimes rations oil to push up prices. The United States is now the biggest producer of oil and gas owing to its shale revolution. It has tapped abundant reserves through fracking - a technology that uses high-pressure water and sand to fracture rock deep below the ground to extract hydrocarbons. This shale revolution has helped the United States become less dependent on oil imported from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Iraq, and other OPEC countries. More oil and gas on global markets has also benefited the world's energy consumers by pushing down costs. Oil still remains the primary fuel, supplying almost 1/3 of the world's energy but its heyday may soon be over, despite growing demand. By 2040 the world's global energy use is set to increase by 30 percent. That energy must be much cleaner if the world wants to prevent catastrophic global warming. In the past coal and gas were less expensive than renewable technology but their costs have come down dramatically. There is now a race among some nations to create more efficient renewable technologies to reduce pollution and be more energy self-sufficient. China is the world's largest consumer of coal and the second largest of oil but it also now leads the world in clean energy. one third of the world's new wind power and solar panels is installed in China, and it sells more electric cars than any other country. The quest for energy self-sufficiency is a big motivation for many countries. China is moving fast, and America under President Donald Trump, is securing its energy independence with oil and gas. But unlike oil and gas renewables will not increase global warming. The long term transition to clean energy will throw up new global challenges. It will create tensions in unstable parts of the Middle East as oil revenue starts to dry up. Another challenge is that wind and sun are intermittent. renewables may require vast shared electricity grids spanning boarders to make them more efficient. To stop global warming the world needs a huge collaboration over our shared energy future. If we fail, wars over scarce resources could be even worse in the 21st century than in the 20th.

Please watch: "Peshawar BRT new Updates" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GulUT2uoli4 --~-- KARACHI: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that the general elections will be held in August 2018 and added the future lies in democracy and there was no other way. He was speaking at the inauguration of unit-I of 1,320MW Port Qasim coal-fired power project here on Wednesday. “Pakistan has a vibrant democracy and the state institutions are on the same page and working for the betterment of Pakistan and it’s people.” Abbasi said the 660MW (unit-I) was completed in a record time while the unit-II will be commissioned by February 2018. The Port Qasim coal plant is jointly developed by the Power China Resources Limited and Qatar's Al-Mirqab Capital with a total investment of $2.085 billion. The government completed the energy project on time that it had started. Nepra reduced the electricity tariff by Rs2 per unit. Abbasi said the power generation has increased beyond the country's demand. He said Pakistan has achieved surplus generation and now other energy sector issues including transmission and distribution and circular debt were being dealt with. “This project reflects the vision of President Xi and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif,” Abbasi said and added Pakistan is committed to CPEC as this would ensure economic growth of the country as well as the entire region. Recalling numerous infrastructure projects initiated and completed during the current tenure, Prime Minister Abbasi said no government in Pakistan delivered so much for the people as the PML-N government did and that too at a much cheaper cost. Qatari Prince and Al-Mirqab Capital Chairman Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al Thani expressed the hope that they would do more projects with China and Pakistan. He also said that Qatar was willing to make investments in CPEC projects. The prime minister thanked the Qatari prince for gracing the inauguration event with his presence. He said the Port Qasim Coal Power Plant was a proof of Pak-China friendship. Chinese Ambassador Yao Jing said the Chinese government and Chinese companies would make every effort to make CPEC a success for the betterment and prosperity of Pakistani people. “The most important aspect of the Port Qasim power project is the involvement of Qatar, which reflects the political willingness of China and Pakistan to have peace and development in the region. We hope other countries would also join CPEC soon,” Jing added. Speaking on the occasion, Sheng Yuming, Chairman Power China Resources Limited and Port Qasim Electric Power Company, said the successful operation of two units will add 1,320MWs of reliable energy. “Designed to meet the full operation load for 30 years, the power plant is expected to make a significant contribution to resolve the energy shortage in Pakistan.” Yan Zhiyong, Chairman Power Construction Corporation of China, said the last three years had witnessed firm determination of Pakistan government in elimination of terrorism, improvement in economic fundamentals and rising living standards, which led to significant inflows of foreign investment.

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews China has reportedly seen a revival of Coal-to-liquids (CTL) projects, which were suspended many years ago by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime. Industry insiders estimate the projects awaiting approval may involve RMB 700 Billion. Excessive development of China's coal chemical industry has long been controversial for its pollution and water waste. Commentators say it is another shortsighted action taken by local authorities for fiscal revenue and pull GDP figure. On September 2008, the CCP's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) issued a notice. The notice strengthened regulation of CTL projects. The regime ordered all CTL projects to stop in China, except the two under Shenhua Group. The notice has now been removed from the webpage, but lots of related news reports are still accessible online. In May 2009, the General Office of the CCP's State Council released a plan to restructure the petrochemical industry. The plan stated, "prohibit the approval or filing" of market access for coal-to-chemical technology and projects. Recently, China Business Journal reported news about the coal liquefaction project of Inner Mongolia Yitai Group. Yitai's 2-million-ton CTL project is reportedly waiting NDRC approval, and is expected to get the green light soon. The news said there are coal-to-chemical projects awaiting approval that involve investment of RMB 700 Billion. These neo-type projects are located in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang and other regions. Sichuan-based senior engineer Fan Xiao says that environmental capacity is a must factor to be considered. Fan Xiao comments that the CCP regime approving such large projects is not based on the actual demand. Short-term interests that can benefit local authorities are the main reason behind the approval, said Fan Xiao. These benefits include tax, GDP, local fiscal revenues, etc. Fan Xiao: "A lot of existing basic resource projects, like coal and power, has been brought into question in large scale. In the next decade or so, China's investment in energy has far exceeded its needs, in reality." Traditional coal-to-chemical projects are known as high energy consumption, heavy pollution, small scale and obsolete technologies. Back in the period of 2006-2010, China had excess capacity in the coal-to-chemical industry. The late-model coal-to-chemical projects have high use of water. This caused a more serious water crisis in Western China, where there are abundant coal deposits but lack of water. Xie Tian, Professor, University of South Carolina: "This project shows a lot of problems. Firstly, it's greatly subsidized by the government, and has such high water usage and immature technology. If it is invested in heavily, it's very likely to be a huge waste. So it cannot really be commercialized, and would probably never cover its cost. That would be a huge financial hole. In my view, China's economic downturn and stagnation has put too much pressure on the regime. Now it's not choosy about its food. Once the project looks favorable, it will rush hastily to launch it." A research fellow at a Shanghai-based investment consulting firm revealed data to the China Business Journal. On average, the production of 1 ton of CTL uses about 9 tons of water. 1 ton of coal to olefins needs about 20 tons of water. 1 ton of the coal-based dimethyl ether uses some 12 tons of water. High water usage is coal-to-chemical industry's biggest problem. Fan Xiao: "There is no infinite supply of water resources. That's bound to cause a water supply crisis. In return, it pollutes water resources and the atmospheric environment. It also poses potential risks for the economy, as energy can be easily affected by market fluctuation. For example, the price of coal has slumped in the last one year. So in the long run, heavy financial cost will be hidden inside these projects." A number of coal-to-chemical projects have pegged the Yellow River as their water source. A joint research report was released on August 14 by Greenpeace International and the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. It states that in China's official "12th Five-Year Plan", 16 large coal power stations are to be constructed. They will be located in Western China, with the daily use of water at nine times the supply capacity in Beijing. The projects awaiting official approval have aroused public concerns in China. Environmental activist Chen Yunfei remarked that these projects form "another portfolio". It is "another portfolio" without seeking public opinion, nor real expert assessment. It is "another portfolio" that is divided up among local authorities and interest groups, said Chen Yunfei. In reality, since the CCP took rule of China, the country has existed in the pollution caused by so many of these kinds of project.

https://mocomi.com/ presents : How is Coal Formed? Millions of years ago, a large number of plants and ferns grew on Earth. These plants and ferns died in swamps, around riverbanks and got covered with soil and mud and slowly sank into the ground. As the years passed, the Earth’s heat and the weight of the ground changed these dead plants into coal. To extract coal, it needs to be dug out. Coal is usually found in layers, or seams underground.

Thousands of miles separate China's water-rich south and the nation's coal-rich north. In northwest China where water resources are particularly scarce, including the provinces of Inner Mongolia, Ningxia and Shaanxi, the coal industry is rapidly expanding. Last year Greenpeace issued a warning that this coal expansion poses a serious threat to the precious water there and thus the crops and farming communities that depend on it. This year our field investigation dug up evidence of exactly that.

In his lecture Guy will talk about the mindset that sees Australia's greatest asset as its mineral and energy resources - coal especially, asking how has this distorted our national politics and our response to climate change and what happens now that our coal-fired resources boom has gone bust? He will also discuss the future of the coal industry and argues with the current economic orthodoxy. He looks at the shadowy world of greenhouse lobbyists; how they think and operate. Quarry vision, he will argue, is a carbon-laced trap and a blind faith and a mentality we can no longer afford. This lecture comes from the March 2009 Quarterly Essay by Guy Pearse of the same name. Guy Pearse was educated at James Cook University (BA Hons), Harvard (MPP), and the ANU (PhD). He is a former member of the Liberal Party and was a speechwriter for former environment minister Robert Hill. He has also been an industry lobbyist, consultant and spin doctor. In 2007, after his research and concerns were dismissed by his political colleagues, he exposed the dirty politics behind Australias response to climate change on Four Corners and in his book High & Dry. This lecture is part of the Toyota-ANU Public Lecture Series 2009. Presented by ANU Climate Change Institute and Fenner School of Environment & Society.

"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

China's environmental issues need to be understood in a global rather than a narrowly national context. While China as a nation is the largest emitter of carbon dioxide on a per capita basis Chinese citizens produce far fewer emissions than citizens in advanced industrial economies. Further a large proportion of these emissions result from export industries producing goods for export abroad. Environmental protection and climate change mitigation are major concerns of the Chinese government even as industrial growth and increased domestic consumption drive ever larger emissions and energy demand. Coal now amounts to about 70 per cent of China's energy needs. Because of vastly increasing demand, this percentage is unlikely to decline even as cleaner energy sources expand. At a time that Canada is looking at direct energy exports to China, Canadian policy makers need to link energy exports to environmental concerns in two ways. First, Chinese firms should be encouraged to invest in clean energy technology in Canada. Second, a principal aim should be reduction of China's dependence on coal through provision of less dirty oil and natural gas. To be effective, a national strategy is needed in which the provinces, Alberta in particular, are major players in connecting energy exports to environmental improvement.

Chairman Xiong Weiping told Bloomberg, ""In neighboring countries such as in Southeast Asia, there are rich bauxite, coal and hydropower resources, and Chalco is actively seeking investment opportunities. We are willing to form strategic partnerships with power and coal companies by stake purchases to ensure stable and low-cost supplies."" Aluminum Corp. of China plans to jump into the coal, iron ore and rare earths markets as aluminum overcapacity in China, paired with increasing fuel costs, has weighed down the company's profit margins; the company reported a 500 million yuan loss in June ($74 million).

Three were killed and seven trapped after a gas blast occurred on Friday night in a shaft of a coal mine in Shangrao County, east China's Jiangxi Province. The provincial coal mine safety supervision department said 10 miners were working in the shaft when the accident happened at around 22:00 in Yongji Coal Mine. The blast toppled a section of the shaft. Three bodies have been found, and the remaining seven miners are being trapped 200 meters underground. Rescuers were still clearing the collapse debris and could not yet get into the shaft due to existence of toxic gases. The owner of the privately-owned mine has been put under police custody. The mine's safety production license is still in the process of renewal.

State media reported Thursday, at least 19 people died in a coal mine accident in northern China's coal belt of Shanxi. The official Xinhua news agency said preliminary investigations have found that a large portion of the roof collapsed. The collapse kicked up a dust storm within the cavern. According to reports, 129 people were working in the mine. 110 managed to escape. Quoted by AFP last year, a senior manager said that the company's bosses were ramping up production to counter a drop in coal prices. Cranking up production with limited resources can lead to serious accidents and oversights in processes. Shanxi has experienced major coal mine accidents in both 2013 and 2010. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/QnLw4P5EYco/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

As one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change, Southeast Asia is witnessing the world’s biggest jump in greenhouse gasses. The International Energy Agency estimates that the region’s energy demand will grow by 66 percent by 2040, with coal accounting for almost 40 percent of this increase. Since President Xi Jinping launched China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013, Chinese investment in coal and gas have intensified in Southeast Asia. The World Resources Institute has estimated that 75% of the $145 billion BRI loans from China’s major banks have supported fossil fuel energy projects, including $10 billion for coal plants. Although China produces 90% of the world’s solar panels, Chinese solar power companies are a notably small part of BRI energy investments, but with President Xi calling for a “greener” BRI, this could change. At this CEF meeting, speakers will provide stories of China’s energy engagement in Southeast Asia, highlighting the opportunities for China to play a bigger role in supporting the region’s clean energy transition. Courtney Weatherby (Stimson Center) will review China’s role as an energy investor in Southeast Asia and explore the growing interest for solar and other renewables to meet region’s future energy demand. She also will share stories of new clean energy targets and policy shifts in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. Sam Geall (chinadialogue) will discuss the Chinese government’s ambitious plan to add over 10 GW capacity of solar photovoltaic power to benefit over 2 million rural households across China by 2020. He will talk about how these solar initiatives in China could inform the government’s efforts to increase clean energy investments in the Belt and Road Initiative. Darrin Magee (Hobart and William Smith Colleges) will delve into how an interconnected smart grid linking solar power plants in Cambodia with hydropower plants in China’s Yunnan Province could balance energy supplies and reduce the need for more hydropower in the region.
