Whatever the USA does or doesn’t do won’t make a Tinker’s Dam regarding CO2 unless the rest of the world, especially China and India, reduces coal-fired power plants as well.
How many coal power plants are there in the world today?
I knew the rough idea about the number of coal plants, but had not yet seen actual numbers until now.
The EU has 468 – building 27 more… Total 495
Turkey has 56 – building 93 more… Total 149
South Africa has 79 – building 24 more… Total 103
India has 589 – building 446 more… Total 1035
Philippines has 19 – building 60 more… Total 79
South Korea has 58 – building 26 more… Total 84
Japan has 90 – building 45 more… Total 135
China has 2,363 – building 1,171 more… Total 3,534
That’s 5,615 projected coal powered plants in just 8 countries.
USA has 15 – building 0 more..Total 15
And Democrat politicians with their “green new deal” want to shut down those 15 plants in order to “save” the planet.
Because you could not get many Republicans off the sofa last November, the Socialist party now runs the U.S. House Of Representatives.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
This makes the point. Whatever the USA does or doesn’t do won’t make a Tinker’s Dam regarding CO2 unless the rest of the world, especially China and India, reduces coal-fired power plants as well.
The whole “global warming” and “climate change” gambits by Democrats are to create a *supposedly* sound, scientific basis to justify a federal government power-grab and the passage of MORE laws to increase taxes and increased control of the privately owned power industry and its distribution. Never forget the *main* motivation they have!
“Oh, we will SAVE the planet!!” 100% Pure Bull@#$!
