China Coal-Fired Economy Dying of Thirst as Mines Lack Water

Bloomberg: "About half of China’s rivers have dried up since 1990 and those that remain are mostly contaminated. Without enough water, coal can’t be mined, new power stations can’t run and the economy can’t grow. At least 80 percent of the nation’s coal comes from regions where the United Nations says water supplies are either “stressed” or in “absolute scarcity.”"
Electric vehicles? Not a solution.
