Bummer: China Building More Coal Plants, Could Deal Blow To COP26

Hey, remember when Let’s Go Brandon and John Kerry, along with so many Warmists, were extolling how great China is for saying they’re on board with Doing Something about ‘climate change’? How’s that going?

China’s plan to build more coal-fired plants deals blow to UK’s Cop26 ambitions

surprise surprise surpriseChina plans to build more coal-fired power plants and has hinted that it will rethink its timetable to slash emissions, in a significant blow to the UK’s ambitions for securing a global agreement on phasing out coal at the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow.

In a statement after a meeting of Beijing’s National Energy Commission, the Chinese premier, Li Keqiang, stressed the importance of regular energy supply, after swathes of the country were plunged into darkness by rolling blackouts that hit factories and homes.

While China has published plans to reach peak carbon emissions by 2030, the statement hinted that the energy crisis had led the Communist party to rethink the timing of this ambition, with a new “phased timetable and roadmap for peaking carbon emissions”.

China doesn’t want to depend on unreliable wind and solar, but, they’re happy to sell all those “clean energy” products to climate cultist nations.

Beijing’s renewed embrace of coal – apparently at odds with Xi’s state climate ambitions – are likely to cause alarm in the run-up to Cop26.

China was never giving up coal. They were, shockingly, telling the Warmists what they wanted to hear, pledging to Do Something, but, doing the opposite. If they were smart, they’d build nuclear plants, but, it’s a lot easier and faster to do coal. And cheaper.

Meanwhile

Where has the wind gone? ‘Global stilling’ is blamed as wind speeds drop across Europe cutting green energy production – threatening to drive up energy prices even FURTHER

Industry experts are warning that climate change may have caused wind speeds in Europe to plummet this year in news that threatens to drive energy prices even higher.

Long labelled as a saviour of the energy industry, wind farms have cropped up across the continent in recent years and have been billed a low-cost, renewable and dependable source of power.

Experts are blaming a growing phenomenon known as ‘global stilling’ – whereby measurable wind speeds across the world’s continental surfaces have decreased by as much as 15 per cent since 1980.

Remember when the climate cult was saying that ‘climate change’ is causing the world’s winds to speed up? What happened to that? I’m sure they have Reasons, just like blaming winter weather on heat trapping gases.

    More good news-US coal consumption up 23%. Trump couldn’t get coal back, but crazy Slow Joe sure can. John-hope you’re not on suicide watch…

    • Hairy says:

      Jl yes it is true our Biden economy is booming and even the more expensive fossil fuels are now in high demand even though do.extic oil production is set to double froM TR UMPS last year
      Thanks Joe!!!

        Thanks Joe!!!

        Let’s see, inflation is projected to end the year at 5.4% – the highest since 2008.

        Prices for energy have skyrocketed, which affect the middle and lower class.

        Biden’s approval is below that of Trump, Congress and the media.

        (Remember the days when Hairy thought an approval rate of 50% was a negative talking point against Trump?)

        Bottom line is that once again we see Hairy hating the middle and lower class.

        Then again, all the left has is hate.

        Oil production is NOT “set to double”. It is declining.

        http://ace.mu.nu/archives/395984.php “Biden economy booming…” Really?
        “Fossil fuels in high demand”. Funny-but no renewables in high demand? Wonder why?
        But you have to hand it to Slow Joe-he does his best to curtail fossil fuel production in the US at the same time he begs OPEC for more oil.

    Jl
    He who laughs last laughs best coal privation would have yo incrrsde about 75% to go back up to the level of Trumps best year
    Does anyone g iresee that ? Jl are you personally going to.be buying coal stocks. The largest company Peabidy Energy lost about 60 percent of its value under Trump its main value now is from real-estate holdings on its former productive mines

    • Kye says:

      One needs not “personally” buy stocks in a company or industry to support both it’s objectives and it’s employees. Just because you think coal miners should “learn to code” (which is a haters wy of saying fuk them). does not mean that should be America’s policy.

      Coal energy production losing “60%” was due to bad Deep State regulations NOT Trump. When the EPA stops your production to save a pigmy cockroach or some other stupid leftist trope it hurts. And it’s people who are hurt. We know elitists and fascists like you don’t care about working people who may not vote for you but they are still Americans.

      All you have is hate.

      • Professor Hale says:

        Nothing wrong with “learning to code”. As long as our own government isn’t undermining future code jobs by importing hundreds of thousands of low paid code monkeys from India. Oh… never mind.

    Those poor deluded Chinese. Investing billions in unsustainable fossil fueled power plants and at the same time hastening the day when their coastal cities will submerge. Don’t they realize how unsustainable this is? It’s almost as if they don’t actually believe the things they are saying about climate change at the climate change conferences they attend.
