The new role of the United States: a raw materials appendage

It seems that the supply of Pennsylvanian coal, imposed a burden on Poroshenko, does not save the American coal industry from collapse. Now Washington wants to put salvation on the shoulders of the American military.

Trump plans to transfer the naval infrastructure for the export of energy resources, including coal. And then two bells are heard at once.

First, the imminent reduction of the US Navy. The hegemon will no longer scare everyone with its aircraft carrier groups if its rivals have modern missile weapons - this is no longer efficient and costly.

Secondly, the economy of the States is clearly not in the best position, since it is necessary to search frantically for someone to shove his coal in bulk. Donald wants to impose coal on Asian countries, but whether they will buy is not yet clear. In addition to building a transport corridor directly, it is also necessary to get rid of Australian competitors, whose coal is closer and, accordingly, cheaper.

There is also a third bell, but it is not obvious. The US Department of Energy reports that US producers are switching to renewable sources of energy and gas, which is why it is necessary to save the coal industry through exports. And if this is not a replacement of coal for gas and wind, but a banal reduction in production?

An unenviable future awaits the American empire. Ports, where the ships of one of the strongest fleets in the world once moored, are waiting for conversion to coal. The states that tried to condemn Russia to the role of a raw materials appendage turn into it themselves.

    Well, if the United States will switch to its own domestic rather than colonial "cakes", then the Americans will live like in all other countries.

      The U.S. transition to the sale of its own raw materials abroad suggests that the US Federal Reserve speculation on US financial products debugged earlier in the US is starting to fail worldwide.
      But the collapse of the US financial metropolis in the world they have colonized is still a long way off.

        I looked at the photo and remembered the movie "Behind the Matches".
        The merry Finns mentally sent Ihalainen (the hero of Leonov) to America for happiness.

        So these two in the photo delving into the coal mines of America found happiness?

        All the same, the Finns in the film fellows who stayed at home in Russia at that time. In the bathhouse they take a steam bath with their wife, they contemplate nature. Lyapota.

        And the seekers of happiness in American ore and coal are being picked out in American mines. There it (ore) is different, not a couple of ours. There he (coal) brings happiness! laughing

      FSE would be good, but everyone knows for a long time that mattresses have an "imported deficit" and if it comes to "pay for goods in gold and not cut paper" laughing laughing . The question of ribs will become a sharp question, but if in the USA itself the demand for access to which they threaten everyone in a row?
      Will the US market be just as attractive if they are forced to pay real value for deliveries of all sorts of things? And where they will then shove their dollyars. Yes, they will "heat" with their own coal, but if NOW they cannot sell it inside the country because of the high cost (otherwise they wouldn’t be looking for where to export it), then what will they do when the domestic market is betrayed? YES everything goes to the fact that the Great Depression will seem like paradise to them belay laughing laughing

              And I liked your "FSE". laughing

              This is due to the fact that we poke the keys with our fingers, and not with our hand AWARE we are writing letters.
              So, there are no questions to your letter, since there is no letter, but there is a message of thought by poking fingers (two !!!) on the keyboard.

              With this method, you can miss. And if there is no keyboard, and you have to poke into the phone screen, then the chances of sticking adjacent letters becomes a hundred times more.

              It is important that you convey a conscious thought. good drinks

              The illiteracy of our communication is the result of technological progress and the rejection of the letter in favor of poking!
              This is the situation. laughing

              Because of this very progress, we eat all kinds of crap instead of sausages, drink suragate instead of milk, and eat palm oil instead of cream. (just eat it! you can’t eat such a guano laughing )

              Guard!!! It looks like we are being held by a herd fed with compound feed wassat laughing

And the toilets that were pasted with money were ... Then hyperinflation ... It seems that the boomerang is coming back ... and Trump is doing it all right ... That’s what the Fed will close ...

    such rumors and implicit signs have been around for a long time, green energy is quite expensive pleasure ... and completely unprofitable, and very subsidized ... and what do they do with subsidies ...? , they spend, of course they spend ..., coal-fired power plants are the basis of energy, a powerful coal lobby ..., The USA is full of resources ... and the traditions of their export are great ... you should not laugh at the name of a raw materials appendage, especially in the American version , the sale of raw materials is not the worst that could be .... Issues of prestige do not concern the Yankees ... but money .... they don’t smell.

      Green energy - high technology - is for the state of Philadelphia for example. And here is Pennsylvania - it’s such a curiosity — and you need to create jobs - here they can still produce coal. That is what they are doing from the current realities. You look after 5-10 years there and they will make panels or something else. In the meantime, the current is)

      do not laugh at the name of the raw materials appendage, especially in the American version,

      I agree. They are prices for raw materials and primary processing in the "colonies" and set by force. And another question, what is more worth - to make a BMW body, or to mine ore and smelt steel, spending a lot of energy. You can also turn the ratio sideways. There would be "aircraft carriers".

    And if it's still not a substitute for coal for gas and wind

    This is not a replacement.

    These are the best indicators for generation. In 10 states, everything reached 20% of what is needed, all states are either desert or coast. And the states - 50 !!! In many - there is simply nowhere to build wind farms - there are no sustainable winds. The sun too, by the way. And in absolute numbers - miserable generation.
    Simply stupid without export - it’s unprofitable to chop coal. In short, as with shales - on paper, but there are NO tankers with gas in nature - NO

    If the USSR used its military infrastructure for the urgent delivery of necessary spare parts for industrial equipment, and the intelligence infrastructure for the prompt purchase of such, then the directors would not be forced to order three multi-million dollar machines for currency instead of one. This would bring hundreds of billions more of those rubles only in the form of savings. And the monstrous amount of profits, and the increase in production from a radical reduction in downtime, I simply can not count.
    Unfortunately, the brains of Trump, the Soviet leadership after Stalin was not found. In general, not funny ...

    As the weed grows, the cow will die of hunger ...

    Auto cites arguments sucked from the finger about the imminent transformation of the United States into Russia in the sense of a global gas station.

    And he rejoices over the fact that as if the neighbor’s cow is about to die, which is just a teenage complex.

    And those who do not have such complexes could ask why the United States, a country with the most powerful technological potential, the most advanced science and the standards of life inaccessible to Russia, suddenly took up its fuel and energy complex, shale oil, coal, gas, etc., yes so that pushed Russia seriously in this market?

    And this is not evidence of decline, but quite the opposite, precisely because of its technological potential, advanced science and good governance, America can do this and lead the fuel and energy sector, advancing in all directions. Indeed, Russia buys the most important technologies for drilling from America. Russia is not the USSR, which once was ahead of the rest, and on the remnants of which modern erefia is now parasitizing ...

    The sobs of joy on our imaginary case of problems from our sworn partner will not help us, this is the same information trash that rushes from Russian TV channels that everyone except our wise authorities is to blame for our problems.

    And what to do for the development of Russia, how to get rid of parasites that have stuck around the whole country and suck out the last juices - this will be a difficult task ...

    Ehh author author ... you'd better remember
    For the first time in 45 years, the United States has become the world leader in oil production. As reported by the US Energy Information Administration on Thursday, September 13, America surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russia in terms of fuel produced.
    "In February, the production of crude oil in the United States exceeded the volume of oil production in Saudi Arabia - for the first time in more than two decades. In June and August, the United States bypassed the Russian Federation in production of crude oil for the first time since February 1999," the report says.

    This does not prevent the United States from remaining the undisputed leader in the post-industry! And no one except them can declare such positions. And the fact that using technology can afford to take the first place in production and import anyway, means that they have the best economy in the world. She uses everything.
    Raw materials are nothing ... Brains in the modern world are everything. Import of brains around the world and the highest salaries for these brains. And the raw materials ... the technologies that the brains create will give an increase.
    And the author of the next "The USA is all soon" ... The decaying West ... decays for a very long time ...
    We all, as descendants of Rome and Europe, are very unprofitable transition of the palm to the Asians ..

    Coal is now not very expensive, and coal companies around the world are experiencing serious problems, and increasing the supply of coal in the US market does not at all aim to make money on their own, but on the contrary, having huge reserves just simply devalue the cost of coal to reduce profit, loss, and possibly the closure of enterprises from Russia such as Mechel, Raspadskaya and others ?!
