//quote…….China could, of course, adopt an alternative strategy focused on deliberately reducing fossil fuel consumption.////

that’s just another way of saying ‘’rationing’’.

but once consumers have got used to a certain level of consumption, they will not take kindly to having their standard of living forcibly reduced

in north korea — the elite live with no restrictions on consumption, while the masses exist in a rationed enviroment for every commodity.

that is china’s future, until the system breaks down
