China plans to send a fleet of floating power plants to provide energy for remote islands and oil rigs by 2020, a Chinese government spokesman has confirmed.
A five-year plan was published in March 2016 outlining China’s desire to expand its nuclear generating capacity.
The plants will provide clean energy, heat and even water to remote islands and oil rigs, and will cost more than £300 million ($373 million) each.

Not going to happen, because very soon China is going to be STOPPED from going to those islands illegally. If they refuse, we, the U.S. Navy, will destroy their ships. Just watch.

You have to admit China has edged the U.S. with the world’s highest rate of reliable rocket launches. It’s faster trains, airways, nuclear reactors have a stronger safety record than the U.S. and U.K. Is the Oroville dam evacuation/disaster going to stop the U.S. from building dams?

This land grab is wrong in every way and China’s bullying will lead to conflict.

China is not to be trusted in any way. Why they are being allowed to buy up most of A frica’s minerals, metals and precious stones is a mystery. They are the big threat to us all, not Russia.
