Molom a legend of Mongolia.

In this legend it tells about a little and an old man. The old mans name is molom who is an old shaman and a messenger of life whose soul can become an eagle, a pilgrim, or anything, and the little boy Yonden. A lost child raised by wolves. As they travel across the mongolian steppe, they’re adventures no matter how fun or scary they are it allows Yonden, the “little wolf” to learn many life lessons. Such as generosity, compassion and self knowledge. Thanks to his new master and his help.

He does all of this for the lessons of Buddah. It really helps him learn and grow as a boy. And he is very grateful for the opportunity he had to learn these things. It changed him so much and it changed him for the better. Its a very cool and sweet tale. And it helps me a lot too and teaches me a lot and it could also have that affect on a lot of other people if the read about this tale.

Burning coal for survival in the World’s Coldest Capital.

The main idea of this article is over a million tons of coal is burned each year in Mongolia due to harsh weather conditions and other survived neccesities. The article states facts like temperatures can get as low as negative 40 in both ferenheit and celsius,  we know that over million tons of coal is burnt each year. This tells us they use more than most countries on average. I also can infer about that, that coal is burned in order for mongolians to survive. The coal mining business is off the charts and getting really popular there. People are leaving the hearding business to coal mining. More jobs increasing mean more economical growth.

The prime minister is banning the use and transportation of raw coal. It will be extremely hard for mongolians to stop using raw coal do to how much they use. The prime minister did this to improve the air quality. The cost of electric heaters is too much for most people living in Mongolia. The people of Mongolia resort to coal instead of expensive heaters. The increase in coal mining jobs will give people money they can use to buy and electric heater. The biggest issue from this article, is the absurd amounts of raw coal use. Due to the million and tons of coal burned each year, the air pollution skyrockets linearly.

 The reason I picked Mongolia is because there are a lot of interesting facts on it and it’s very intriguing. Like for example Mongolia enjoys more than 250 days of sunshine a year. Which is why it has the nickname “Land of the Eternal Blue Sky” or “Country of Blue Sky”. Also Mongolia is famous for the nomadic way of life, it’s also estimated that between 30% and 40% of the country’s people live like this.
