  1. Dr. Pielke,

    Excellent graphs!

    I submit the following two graphs to augment yours:

    World Coal Resources
    World Natural Gas Resources

    As expected, we see a very strong correlation between who has what and which resource is most commonly used.

  2. The China data is a little out of date. I count 15 under construction and 9 more scheduled to start before the end of the year.

  5. Just to clarify, does the rest of the world not have any nuclear reactors (say Britain or Italy),or is the graph cut off at 10 reactors?
