Coal Terminal, Qinhuangdao, China | Earth | Satellite
This image shows the coal terminal at the Port of Qinhuangdao—the largest coal shipping facility in China. From here, approximately 210 million metric tons of coal are primarily transported to coal-burning power plants in the major cities in southern China each year. This figure is believed to account for approximately half of the country’s annual consumption.
Pretty scary when you think about the ramifications of burning this stuff 24/7 to China and to the world at large. Something to think about if you ask me.
