    Anthracites one of many kinds of coal: which could be transformed in petroleum, its more clean burning than others coal’s, but using in excess could create another problem , like anything else in excess. I mention a few times about Russia by be the bigger country in the world; have room to expand in many ways, special agriculture. I mention before of letting private companies to be involve in plantation of all kinds of grain to export to around the world. Not many countries having tremendous facilities like Russia when comes to grow many kinds of food. I know the winters are real tough, but time goes fast and again the summer will be there.
