    Go to "Global Coal Plant tracker"

    https://endcoal.org/tracker/

    -look at China
    -scroll in
    -look for "shelved" (blue coded) power plants
    -click on the dot, then the individual dot, then zoom in (a satellite view will come up)

    Lots of these plants do not look shelved, they look like they are complete/ nearly complete
    /if you waste an hour or so looking around on the map it might give a little perspective on the plans that china has -- including jingjinji --- a planned city of 120 million people (6x NYC), the size of Kansas (the state of Kansas!) -- they're going to need all the coal, all the natural gas, all the wind, all the solar, all the nuclear and all the oil the world can muster.

    China to add 259 GW of coal capacity, satellite imagery shows

    By analyzing SATELLITE IMAGERY, research group, Coalswarm has found that coal-fired power stations in China totaling 259 GW, which were supposed to have been scrapped, are being built. When fully commissioned, they will reportedly represent the EQUIVALENT OF TOTAL COAL-FIRED CAPACITY IN THE UNITED STATES. Not only does this news go against China’s current push into renewables, but also raises serious air pollution concerns at a time when levels should be decreasing.”

    As I have stated 15(?) years ago, communist china (always small letters) plans were for 1000 coal-fired power plants, plans which they are bumpingly exceeding. "Carcass" continues the vision of the communist chinese (always small letters), to justify the yearly multi-million Chinese citizen deaths due to coal, air, land & water pollutions, needed to accomplish the uncaring communist chinese(always small letters) "view from the top".
