There is also a third facility being planned. The news says they are the world’s biggest. The first plant has had a pilot run and the news says it was successful so a limited production run is now in process. Aside from that, China has 40 new nuclear power generators in process of being built and maybe 60 if the increase is approved. They can install a nuclear plant in 5-6 years, it takes us 10 to 12 years. We have 19 nuclear plants in the request for permit phase and only recently 4 have been approved for go-ahead(after 2 years in review). They plan to triple their wind and solar power capabilities and are increasing their biofuel acreage. Over a dozen car companies are developing hybrid/electric cars. They produce 3x more electric bikes and scooters than gasoline cars and are producing gasoline cars at a higher rate that America. As an aside they are buying oil now to increase their reserves by 3X. Looks to me they are walking the talk though telling the world they want the United States to lead in developing alternate fuels. Maybe an electric Hummer? Hmmmm!

A Hummer is a guaranteed success story for China. One needs a car like this if you want to travel the roads in mainland China once you get of the mostly empty highways, away from the big cities, and care for some comfort.

From what I could see on a visit to China back in ’07 it seemed there was an amorous infatuation with almost anything with a European/US brand attached to it, or even just a word in English… almost any word would do! Volvo’s seemed to be very popular too.
It’ll be interesting to see how much of Africa’s oil and gas (and other resources) end’s up being extracted by the Chinese.
