Moscow places

If they obtain World Bank financing, then a customer for the coal mine is assured, at least for the duration of the contracts. The power plants will employ the best current technology for burning coal, which exceeds all current air quality standards for the region.

Therefore if the rule of supply and demand worked we would see increase in proved reserves for coal, because increase in dem…
