As noted many of these high polluting countries, China and India, still and will burn coal for the seeming future. Also noted is that the coal they burn is the high polluting coal. Japan and China have both shown interest in the cleaner burning coal produced in the Powder River basin in Wyoming. Wyoming would like to export this coal to Asia but they are blocked by environmental protestors on the west coast. Exporting Powder River coal to Asia would bring high paying union jobs to the Powder River basin as well as to the west coast. It would also cut down on pollution by burning cleaner coal in the countries were air pollution is highest. Even climate scientists have said the world will still continue burning coal for another twenty years. If coal is still going to be burnt than we need to burn the cleanest coal there is. Wall Street 24/7 estimated in the next twenty years wind power will grow 108% and solar power 25%. But it will take twenty years to get those industries built along with the grid to transport the clean renewable energy. What do we do in the meantime? Quit using electricity, but as an essay expert with I'd say, China and India won't do, or burn cleaner coal.
