    So China is kicking the coal habit.
    We’ll see. That’s something that’s easier said than done.

      I agree, China’s polution problem has been around for a long time, and nothing has been done. So if the past is any indication of the future, what we are hearing is just more lip service, without any action to back up all the talk.

    Given that coal appears to be the most abundant fossil fuel on the planet, the challenging geology, and the fact that shale is a finite resource, wouldn’t it make sense to invest at least a little in clean coal technology in China, and in the USA (which contains several centuries worth)?
