#China acaba de estrenar su industria de #aviones comerciales con su primer modelo bautizado como #C919, avion de tipo Jet para casi 200 pasajeros y distancias moderadas que lo hacen perfecto para vuelos cortos, es decir, avastecer el mercado local de cualquier pais.

Este no es el primer avion fabricado ahi, pero si es el primero para propositos comerciales y en recibir las certificaciones de las organizaciones aeronauticas de #Europa y #EEUU, hoy lideres en este sector.

De esta forma se inicia la historia de un nuevo participante en este estrecho mercado, que hoy lideran #Boing y #Airbus. Pero ¿por cuanto tiempo mas?

Antes de que estuviera terminado e hiciera su primer vuelo oficial ya habia recibido pedidos por mas de 200 unidades, lo que garantizaria su produccion... tomando en cuenta que es hasta 10 millones de Euros mas economico que los modelos similares de la competencia.

La inauguracion de este nuevo competidor no podia estar libre de criticas, comenzando porque la prensa internacional dedico gran parte de sus articulos a resaltar que al menos 40% de sus piezas serian suministradas por empresas extranjeras, asi que -segun ellos- no se podria afirmar de que este fuera un avion "made in China".... mmm pero olvidaron mencionar la pequeñez de que es una situacion similar tambien en la fabricacion de los aviones de la competencia. Y esto es lo mismo que con los autos, barcos y todo tipo de maquinaria de gran tamaño, donde finalmente los proveedores de partes nunca son de un solo origen o empresa unica.

Ademas, no se puede dejar de repetir que asi mismo se inicio la historia en todas las otras industrias, en donde los primeros modelos fueron resultado de la cooperacion de diferentes empresas... y esta no es la excepcion.

Lo que realmente importa es lo que va a pasar en este mercado en los proximos 10 años: Si este primer avion consigue volar en los proximos años sin presentar mayores y vitales defectos, los pedidos por nuevas unidades podrian dispararse y el mercado se volvera muy interesante (dinamico).

Solo en el caso del mercado domestico del gigante asiatico y sus vecinos serian mas que suficientes para proveer hasta el 50% del mercado global. Asia es la zona de mayor crecimiento y en el futuro cercano representara mas de la mitad de todo el mercado global.

Como noticia extra, esta semana se acaba de lanzar el primer gran barco de turismo fabricado en China, lo que tambien esta dando inicio a la entrada del pais en otro mercado muy lucrativo... pero esta es otra historia a ser comentada en otro momento.

Hablemos de #Contaminacion Atmosferica

Cuando se hacen bromas o se pregunta sobre ciudades donde es imposible ver el cielo, pocos NO apuntaran a #China, con ciudades gigantescas, llenas de vehiculos viejisimos, vomitando polvo y humo por sobre calles mal pavimentadas... con cielos cubiertos sin posibilidad siquiera de poder ver mas alla de los 50mts. de distancia.

Tampoco seran muchos los que hayan olvidado las imagenes de los dias en que se anunciaban cierres totales de ciudades por causa de la pandemia, y tuvimos oportunidad de ver animales salvajes en las ciudades o en el caso de las ciudades chinas, los vecinos por fin pudieron disfrutar de cielos despejados... imagenes que la TV nos repetia a diario.

Al parecer en occidente, esas imagenes pertenecen mas bien a la tradicional campaña de propaganga que ya nos ha acostumbrado el largo brazo mediatico de Los Esclavos Unidos, porque la realidad dista cada vez mas de esas imagenes que nos bombardean con mentiras descaradas o verdades a medias y muy distorsionadas...

Los siguientes graficos nos muestran parte de la radiografia que hoy tenemos a nivel global: La #India posee lamentablemente la mayoria de las ciudadaes mas contaminadas y los indices de polucion generalizada nos muestran que solo 1 ciudad china sobrepasa los indices peligrosos. Incluso #America Latina esta presente en esta desgraciada estadistica.

La intensificacion del uso de Energias Renovables, la renovacion rapida de la infraestructura en declive, el mejoramiento de las tecnologias, la recuperacion de zonas deserticas, la reforestacion, el aumento de la calidad de vida... estan haciendo de las ciudades del gigante asiatico, un lugar cada vez mas limpio.

Esto es el resultado de una politica consecunte con el objetivo de lograr mejorar las areas mas debiles, que unicamente puede conseguirse a traves de un apoyo economico sostenido en el tiempo. No es posible levantar programas de reforestacion sin recursos, tampoco se pueden mejorar los indices de calidad de vida sin invertir recursos en ello... es un todo.

China is going all in on coal, the dirtiest and most polluting of fossil fuels...

Coal power plant construction and additional project announcements accelerated rapidly in China in 2022, with new permits reaching the highest level since 2015. The coal power capacity construction in China was six times as large as that in all of the rest of the world combined.

But, hey, it's just fine, because China has also recently announced the installation of two amazingly futuristic "carbon capture and storage" facilities!

Except, oh, wait...

Before you get all giddy about this new push by China to capture carbon dioxide, here are a few things you might want to keep in mind.

Whatever carbon dioxide is captured or stored by these two new projects, it won’t amount to a piss hole in the snow when compared to the massive amounts of new carbon dioxide — billions and billions of tons — those new coal-fired generating stations will add to the atmosphere each and every year for the next 50 years or so, which is the normal useful life of a coal-powered facility.

Dang. There's always a catch.

But the capitalist financiers on Wall Street who are funding China's rapid expansion really hope you won't notice that. If they can just keep the gravy train rolling a little longer, carry on with Business As Usual for a few more years until their billions 💵 in offshore accounts turn into trillions 💵 then maybe they'll think about gradually slowing down all this growth and cutting back on emissions. Maybe, but probably not.

Lots of discussions on #Ukraine end up in predictions of a "Korean scenario", implying division of Ukraine into two parts, one independent and one controlled by #Russia like South and North #Korea. This is mostly voiced by "realists" both in Russia and the West.

However, there's a catch: in Korea, the communist invasion army supported by USSR and People's Republic of China captured almost all territory of Korea! At the peak of communist invasion, only a small part of Korean peninsula was left under control of Republic of Korea, at the peak of ROK & Allies counteroffensive only a narrow strip at the North was controlled by the communists. In 1953 they were ultimately pushed back to 38th parallel but in the process Seoul changed hands five times, and the net territorial gain for North Korea was none. So the "Korean model" doesn't really sound well for the supporters of Russia, as it implies freezing the conflict at the 23 February 2022 border, which means nullifying all territorial gains except for Crimea and parts of Donbass.

A fun part which you can use to poke Russian vatniks today: in 1950 #USSR boycotted UN to protest its recognition of #Taiwan as #China. How come? Well, UN recognized it as Republic of China (ROC, 1912-1949) as opposed to People's Republic of China (PRC)...
