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

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.
