    It’s worth noting that this is not being done for environmental reasons (more half of all coal pollution comes from China), but for strategic reasons as China has limited access to oil near it’s borders.

        Just wanted to add some perspective. There’s a narrative lately that China is a champion of the green movement, which is absurd

          It’s no less absurd than the opposite narrative, that China is some kind of climate villain.

          The reality is China is on the right track, but not there yet. I’m somewhat optimistic.

      I mean, that’s a pretty good reason. I’m not too concerned why they do a good thing, as long as it’s done.
