It is no secret to anyone that for some time now, there has been a commercial war between the United States and China. And it has already begun to take its toll, where everyone involved with these nations has been affected.

But now directly China is already in a crisis. In fact, it has been said that if the second largest economy resolves the current slowdown, it will remain mired in a debt-driven depression.

This is causing severe concern in the world’s investors. Being that they are now directing their worried gaze towards China. And with all reason, being that the economic growth in the third quarter sank to 6.5 percent. This is established as the slowest pace from the depths of the global financial crisis in 2009.

The Big Picture: Coal consumption around the world


Taking into account the overall picture of coal today, it could be said that some nations have fallen significantly. While in others it still persists.

In the case of the United States, its president, Donald Trump, has promised the return of “clean and beautiful coal.” However, we must not forget that it is EE. UU The consumption of coal, a dirty fossil fuel, is at a minimum of 40 years. This could be due to the use of cheaper energy sources. And is that Western countries, in general, have seen a significant fall in the use of coal. However, this has not been the case of large developing nations such as China and India.

Floating solar panels: Pretty to look at and so much more

(Mothership)
A solar panel or solar module is a device that captures the energy of solar radiation for its use. The term includes solar collectors, usually used to produce domestic hot water by solar thermal energy, and photovoltaic panels used to generate electricity using photovoltaic solar energy.

It should be noted that when creating a large-scale solar farm, several problems can arise. One of them is finding a place to place all the panels. Being that said place must have access to the sun, for which the most convenient for it would be those spaces that are open. However, the land is not economic at all, except for a few small exceptions.

China's electric car push is shaking up the oil industry

(Gregor Macdonald)
For some 2018 was a crucial year in the global transition to cleaner energy, as well as for Gregor Macdonald, who is an American journalist. Macdonald has a new e-book, Oil Fall, in which he talks about how changes in China are having an impact on the oil industry.

And it is considered that China’s electric car is shaking the oil industry. In fact, in the Chinese vehicle market, sales of electric vehicles increased, despite a drop in overall vehicle sales. This was in mid-2018 when he anticipated that this might not happen until the middle of 2020. The growth prospects for internal combustion engines have ended in China.

It needs to be said that over time, China has had a history of being able to maximize and increase the size and accelerate changes in its economy and infrastructure. This based on policies. While for its part, the United States does not have that kind of ability to do that.
