China – One massive coal plant coming online every 9 days – week after week after week

While the U.S. tries to shut down every single coal plant in the country. Is this madness or what?
Biden’s “net-zero” climate plan will have ZERO effect on the climate

China – One massive coal plant coming online every 9 days – week after week after week

Joe B.

To put some context on the scale of the Chinese coal build out, that 38.4 Gigawatt addition in 2020 ALONE equates to one massive 1,000 Megawatt coal plant coming online every 9 days – week after week – for an entire year. (See China’s strange endorsement of ‘net zero’)

For Australian readers, compare those numbers to your much contested Hazelwood and Port Augusta plants … so so trivial in the global scale of things.

For the (faux) environmentalists … check out the brand new ~$30 BILLION Haoji Railway… a line expressly built for the exclusive transport of 200 million tonnes per year of coal deliveries from the open pit coal mines of Inner Mongolia. (Online pics of the mines make for interesting viewing).

So … when can we expect to see St. Greta standing at a podium in Bejing and giving a stern tongue lashing to Xi?

Now put this together with the following comment from reader John B:

Biden’s “net-zero” climate plan will have ZERO effect on the climate

John B.

“Even John Kerry, Joe Biden’s climate czar, recently admitted that Mr. Biden’s “net-zero” climate plan will have zero effect on the climate if developing countries don’t go along (and they have little incentive to do so).”

Kerry has said this before:

In 2015 at the Paris Climate Conference, Kerry said:

“The fact is that even if every single American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes – if we each planted a dozen trees – if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions – guess what? That still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrialized nations went down to zero emissions – remember what I just said – all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough – not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world. ”

So all the hugely expensive plans, job killing regulations and environmental policies forced on businesses and consumers will have a ZERO effect. Other than to enrich a few politically favored businesses-at the expense of everyone else.

  1. It really is crazy, isn’t It?
    However, there should be NO doubt that the tide is starting to turn.
    Fine sites such as this one, Tony Heller’s realclimatescience dotcom, Anthony Watts’ outstanding wattsupwiththat dotcom continue to provide much needed Truth in these matters of such pressing importance.

    The wider public has been disinformed for a LONG time.
    For the sake of our families, for their futures, we must continue to spread the word.

    We. Are. The. News now.

  2. so if Kerry can say that he knows its true
    but
    he keeps on with the inane media promoted crap about c02 and us nasty nasty white folks basically…
    hey
    thats rayciss and my feelins is hurt!!

  3. The West is being led over the cliff like the good little lemmings that we are. China is playing the flute and we are following their commands while any person that publicly questions the path becomes persona non grata. I totally blame this self immolation on an incestuous educational system that excludes opposing views among its teachers and professors. Students that dare to voice opposing opinions are given poor grades. You will conform!!!

  4. Heck John ‘traitor’ Kerry wants to get rid of CO2 in the atmosphere.
    Ignorant people like him are easily led by others such as President Panda Xi.

  5. we are to go to electric vehicles , but we are shutting down the source of power for these ‘wonderful’ vehicles. As aside note I just bought a Ford truck and while there they were charging a new electric Mustang , plugged in to a regular outlet it was going to 16 hours, 8 hours on the charging outlet at the dealership, imagine what it would be like waiting to charge your vehicle while taking a trip. Now back to the point, they just shutdown a nuclear plant in New York, they are doing the same in Newsomeornia, how many solar farms and wind mills will it take(while ruining the view) to keep up with the load, how many of our ‘working people can afford one of these ‘earth saving vehicles. The truth is only the elite will be able to drive. All of this is coming from urbanites with no ability to see reality for those of us who live in rural areas.
