    Go to "Global Coal Plant 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.
