Speaking of Japanese Coal
Japan plans to build at least 45 new coal plants. From joannenova:
One of the world's largest economies with no land available for wind or solar farms; has also given up on nuclear power. I doubt South Korea has much land available for wind or solar farms. China would have the land, but the overwhelming need for electricity pretty much precludes any significant use of intermittent, undependable, non-dispatchable energy. I assume India is in the same energy boat.
