Chart : production of cement, per year, per country

A staggering chart about annual cement production by country from 2004 to 2007, in billions of metric tons. Cement is used to make concrete.

Source The Oil Drum (a fascinating source of infos about peak oil and other related energy issues).

(source of the datas, USGS)

Thailand produced in 2006 twice than France (40 000 thousand metric tons versus 21 000), and more than Germany, more than Brazil…

And China… almost HALF of the world production ! Look this ! It’s amazing. It’s bloody scary.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
