  1. Right next to China is Kazakhstan with 10 times more recoverable coal reseurcos than Mongolia. 20 times if you count in just anthracite and bituminous coal.Russian coal exports to China, though not great, have grown tenfold in a few years.Nevertheless, since China’s consumption now is close to 3500 million tons with recoverable reserve life of 35 years, and world total coal exports 1100 million tons . the writing’s on the wall.France built 56 nuclear reactors in 15 years I wonder how many the Chinese would be able to build if they really went for it?
