Dartmouth 2K9 2 Impact - The Chinese coal industry does not solve the energy crisis and MASSIVELY increases pollution Roberts, 4 (Paul, “The end of oil on the edge of a perilous new world”, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2004, Page 247) // MDP Instead, China will solve its looming energy security problems in the worst way possible : through coal . China is , in fact , well on its way towards becoming the world’s largest coal economy . According to one forecast , to meet its demand for electricity , China must build as many as sixty 400 megawatt electric power plans every year for the next decade , and most of them will burn coal . Despite an apparent decline in coal use during the 1990’s (which Western analysts optimistically attributed to improved energy efficiently and a shift toward gas), Chinese coal consumption is again rising in neighboring India , which is on a similar coal track , will account for more than two-thirds of the growth in world demand for coal . By 2050 , more than a third of the energy consumed by China and its neighbors will come from coal ,” warns Reid Detchon, a former energy official in the first Bush administration, “but whether China will use its coal cleanly .” At this point, the answer seems to be no . China is so poor that is simply cannot afford the kind of cutting- edge IGCC technology needed for a “clean-coal ” energy economy . Instead , Beijing is relying largely on the same obsolete coal-fired technology that plagues the West . Indeed , many of China’s ; existing coal fired power plants are so ancient they lack emissions control technology and waste most of the energy they generate . The result is a power sector that is horribly polluting and so inefficient that , to meet the nation’s rising energy demand , it has been forced to build new plants faster than if it used a more efficient power technology , like gas – thus committing China to burn even more coal and emit even more pollutants . 2
