Re: Stephen Harper’s Canada: The Legacy of TyrantsApr 17th, 2019
You silly little dickweed. Your argument isn't with me, it's with Natural Resources Canada, StatsCan and the NEB.
From StatsCan: https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/t1/tbl1...pid=2510004601 You can see the thermal coal exports for the last quarter of 2018 plus Jan 2019.
From the NEB: https://www.neb-one.gc.ca/nrg/ntgrtd...rdctn-eng.html
From Natural Resources Canada: https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/facts/coal/20071 Which means that 7% of coal exports are thermal coal. And since the vast bulk of that coal is bound for Asia, guess where the f*ck it gets shipped from. Go ahead, I'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count.
Or are you suggesting that these organs of the Groper govt are in fact lying about coal exports.
in fact no thermal coal at all goes through the port of vancouver to china.
and from your own link:
Total coal production is expected to decline to 34.3 MT by 2040. This would be primarily caused by lower thermal coal production resulting from provincial and federal commitments to phase out the use of coal in power generation. On the other hand, production of metallurgical coal is expected to increase slightly. Continued development and population growth in the Asian-Pacific regions are expected to increase future demand for metallurgical coal. Given Canada’s reserves of quality metallurgical coal and its proximity to the Asian-Pacific market, it is in a position to capture a portion of the increasing demand from the Asian-Pacific region.
