A damning new report from GWPF outlines massive new energy projects being undertaken by the CCP which dwarf its figleaf ‘green energy’ enterprises, here’s a short excerpt, but everyone should download and read the full document.
China today relies on fossil fuels for 86% of its total primary energy consumption (58% from coal, 20% from petroleum and other liquids, and 8% from natural gas).28 Rather than curbing its appetite for fossil fuels, Beijing is voraciously seeking more. In the case of coal, China has aggressively relaxed regulations that restricted domestic coal production, seeking to rapidly raise production capacity. ‘In the first half of 2020 China approved 23 gigawatts-worth of new coal power projects, more than the previous two years combined,’ reported
AFP, citing Global Energy Monitor, a San Francisco-based environmental NGO. The CCP approved 141 million tons of new annual coal mining capacity in the first half of 2019. In all of 2018, it approved 25 million tons.
The story is similar with oil and gas, with huge new pipeline and fracking projects underway. It’s almost as if China knows that conditions are likely to get more difficult both in terms of international relations and in terms of climatic conditions, in the face of the solar grand minimum we are entering.
The western countries don’t have any ability to affect China’s decisions regarding energy, but they do have the ability, and urgent necessity, to take stock of their rush to over-reliance on intermittent power sources such as wind and solar energy. The GWPF report details the way western NGOs have been used by the CCP to act as cheerleaders for China’s duplicitous pronouncements on climate action.
The revelation that CCP operatives have been infiltrating western countries’ industries, diplomatic and non-governmental organisations should be a big wake up call to our political leaders. Get your heads out of the sand!
