Re: Steel-I was staggered by this statistic.
The pages of the Hebburn message board produce many interesting and varied items. Some funny, some sad and some trivial (including much of my own input). The article by Mac Cummings falls into none of these categories. It is absolutely terrifying. He has identified the Chinese Steel industry as an example of the manufacturing might of what was, until recently, an insignificant industrial country. What other unimaginable gigantic sources of output do they have? As Mac says “try to get your head around it.” More steel produced in China since the general election than we have EVER made since 1870. OMG. Add to this, the UK's valiant attempt to reduce poison emissions compared to what must be happening in China. The article by Mac Cummings makes most other concerns almost meaningless.
