-Chinese Premier Keqiang: China needs to “resolutely prevent power outages,”.
-Consumers are cranking up air conditioning in the north, driving power demand in China to records.
-China produces more coal than ever before, but it may not be enough to satisfy power demand.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said this week that China should increase its coal production capacity in order to prevent power outages, as the northern and central parts of the country are baking in a heatwave that is driving power consumption to record levels.

China needs to “resolutely prevent power outages,” the premier was quoted as saying on Tuesday while a heatwave sweeps through northern and central China, while heavy rain in the southern provinces is flooding cities, including in the most populous province, Guangdong.

Consumers are cranking up air conditioning in the north, driving power demand in China to records, and threatening to overwhelm the Chinese power grid again.

China has a power shortage due to heatwave. China has a energy problem and had a power crisis in Fall 2021.

Wish I could work up some compassion for my fellow human beings across the Pacific.
