Thank you for your reply. I dont doubt what your telling me, I would like to learn more. Can you point me somewhere i can avoid the propaganda and learn the real story?
According to the BP Statistical Review 2016, global coal consumption fell in 2015 by 1.8 percent—the largest decline since the mid-1960s when BP first reported data. In 2015, oil was the largest source of energy and coal was the second largest. Coal’s 29.2 percent of global energy consumption was the lowest global share since 2005.In the United States, draconian regulation plus low natural gas prices made natural gas competitive with coal in electricity markets.
Some major economies, including the United States and China, decreased their coal consumption in 2015 while a number of other countries including India, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, Poland, and Spain all increased their coal consumption.
IEA expects worldwide growth in coal consumption to average just 0.6 percent between 2015 and 2021 as developed countries continue to abandon the energy source and China's consumption plateaus. That will offset growing demand among emerging nations, particularly in India and Southeast Asia.

North Korea will now know what it is truely like being isolated from the ENTIRE world. Not even China will look in their direction for anything.
All Fatboy Kim has to do is launch ONE more missile and he can kiss his country good-bye. I know he will be stupid enough to try it. Wondering if getting bombed to oblivion is worth the move.

This could be Trump's doing.
A new trade deal with China?
NK gets punished.
China gets cheaper, cleaner coal.
US gets more jobs for miners.
Your an optimist

I think North Koreas days are coming to a end
Hah, North Korea has stood up to the Empire for decades. Little tiny Korea, as defiant as Cuba, Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc.
We couldn't take the whole Korean peninsula last time wth a whole Blitzkrieg, either.
