Mr. Ganbaatar said that they need to consume 10 tons of coal to overcome the cold days of the winter. That means the same amount of carbon dioxide will be emitted into the environment. So he is requesting 2,000,000 MNT to buy construction materials such as glass-wool, bricks, cement, paint, and windows.
