World Coal Production
The entire world coal production is sadly something we must all be aware of at this point in time. I say sadly because the rest of the world’s economy and resources are something we shouldn’t have to worry about. They should be able to regulate themselves while we regulate ourselves as well. But our coal usage all over the world has come to such a state that now we must keep a tally of all the world coal production to know when we will finally one day have to give up coal. All of the possible mines in the world have already been discovered. Of course there is lots of coal in many places, but not many places in the world have enough coal in one area to be able to form a profitable mine there, and the coal industry is all about profit. As of now, world coal production is booming. Everyone is producing so much coal at very fast rates and estimates project we’ll have enough coal, still accounting for growth, to last for another 50 to 100 years with all of the mines we currently have. This doesn’t even count he possibility that we may one day find even more mines or even more large coal deposits. Unfortunately we will have to soon start counting for that and looking for those if we can’t solve this coal problem soon because 50 years is not as long as it sounds.
Saying that it will last 50 to 100 years is not a positive thing and might as well be like saying that in 50 to 100 years we will be without electricity or at least without 40% of our electricity stash and we will need to make lots of cutbacks. We already have to import from other countries. Just about every country but Australia is forced into a position in which the only way they have to rely on the collective global coal production in order to survive because once other countries run out like these ones have, what will these ones do. This is a tender situation and one that must be handles carefully and we need to be able to come up with better alternative in the next 50 years or so before our reliance on the global coal production hits a breaking point. We cannot rely on each other forever because there are already states running out of coal and once other countries run out too, they will conserve for themselves alone.
It is fairly obvious what the job of a cook will entail, but if you have skills in this area would you consider working on an oil rig to put them to the test? It certainly provides an altogether different environment from where many other cooks work, and yet it is...
