Red Chinese to Double Nuclear Plant Construction

It is so strange to see the Red Chinese leading the US when it comes to actually reducing carbon without destroying their economy in the process.

More nukes means a slower growth rate in coal electric power plant construction. The total amount of CO2 emissions from Chinese plants will continue to rise. But it would rise as fast and as far as previously projected.

That high build rate should bring down costs and make China the low cost leader in nuclear power plant construction.

They could even have to opportunity to start shuttering those coal plants as more nuclear capacity comes online. That would reduce the total amount of coal that they would have to import. Too bad we couldn't get some of these Red Chinese to run our "green economy."
