Hot Weather and Shortage of Electricity- Problematic Summer in China?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 3, 2011


China is growing at a stellar pace, maybe too quickly. In addition they have had problems keeping up with the electrical demand. The blurb below from the chinadaily explains that the energy defecit of China is equivalent to the installed capacity of one of their states or provinces as they call them. This is strking insofar as it shows the stress that the Chinese infrastructure has undergone as well as may signal a prlbem they need to face- angry people. When the temperature climbs, people get angry. Angry people tend to do angry things. In this climate (no pun intended) this may mean that the center country may have an interesting summer of ‘011

Chinadaily from here:
“The 30 million kW electricity shortage is equivalent to the total installed capacity of Fujian or Xiamen province,” said director of the statistics department with the CEC, Xu Jing.

Chongqing municipality, Zhenjiang province and Jiangsu province have seen electricity strains while Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Henan, Shanxi and Sichuan are expected to face electricity shortages in the summer.”

    Oh please God let this happen, oh please. We need more angry farmers with pitchforks in addition to the already growing rebellion, food shortages, and economic oil bruhaha in Lybia, and South Sudan eventually shutting off the tap, with the hardliner Harper in power of Canada you can forget about abundant oil and wheat at cheap prices. AND the economic bubble set to burst any moment, Hurt the people make them so angry they cry tears of acidic urine. (regular tears and sweat context)… Push it over, push this fucking regime over this summer.

    Post more good news please post more good news.
