Growth Engines: Coal and Nuclear Powering China’s Economic Rise & Global Ambitions

No country ever got rich without abundant supplies of affordable energy. It’s all very well for the well-fed, smug and pompous to lecture others about the virtues of wind and solar. But when you’re dragging hundreds of millions out of agrarian poverty, virtue signalling runs a very poor second. And, so it is, with China. […]

Last Man Standing: China Defies Biden’s Climate Crusade Against Coal-Fired Power

The CCP won’t let America’s climate industrial complex interfere with its economic ambitions, key to which is its burgeoning supply of reliable and affordable coal-fired power. Whereas Australia’s suicidal renewable energy obsession has destroyed this country’s competitive advantage, the only interest China has in wind turbines and solar panels is making them and flogging them […]

Solar Slaves: China Dominates Market For Solar Panels Using Forced Uighur Labour

The smugness exhibited by the owners of solar panels is in its own special class. Pious and self-righteous, these characters are quick to pontificate about their holier than thou credentials. Of course, plastering one’s roof with solar panels is all about saving the planet; and has nothing to do with bleeding their neighbours dry – […]

Fossil Foiled: Climate Industrial Complex Can’t Curb China’s Insatiable Demand for Coal-Fired Power

The growth in China’s demand for coal-fired power – and the construction of new plants to generate it – is a case of full steam ahead. Where the climate industrial complex is delighted by the destruction of reliable and affordable power supplies in the West, it stands powerless against China’s insatiable demand for coal-fired electricity. […]

Climate Warriors Furious Over India & China’s Insatiable Thirst for Coal-Fired Power

For years now, we’ve been told that “coal is dead” and that India and China will plump for wind and solar, instead of coal-fired power. Well, that’s the line being run by renewable energy rent seekers and wind and solar zealots around the globe. It is, of course, complete bunkum. With hundreds of millions still […]

Suicide Pact: Subsidised Wind & Solar Designed to Wreck First World Economies

One of China’s principal strengths is its ability to harness cheap and reliable nuclear and coal-fired power. Contrast that with Australia’s energy policies deliberately hostile to coal and nuclear power, and it’s hard not to conclude that our political betters are in cahoots with the CCP. The Roman Empire didn’t collapse because the barbarians to […]

Renewables Driven Demand for Rare Earths Leaves America Vulnerable to CCP Extortion

Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of the Western world’s insatiable appetite for ‘feelgood’ electricity generated by sunshine and breezes, occasionally stored in giant lithium batteries, as well as the […]

Full-Steam Ahead: No End to China’s Insatiable Appetite For Coal-Fired Power

China isn’t even vaguely interested in intermittent wind and solar; it’s insatiable demand for coal to fuel coal-fired power plants tells the story, as does the fact that it continues to build new coal-fired plants, hand over fist. All despite claims by wind and solar cult that China will soon turn its nose up at […]

Going, Going, Gone: Renewables Sector Reels As 150,000 German ‘Green’ Jobs Evaporate

The great ‘green’ jobs ‘bonanza’ is being revealed for the hoax that it truly is. And nowhere is that reality harsher, than in Mutti Merkel’s Germany. Plastered in solar panels (albeit blanketed in snow and ice at the moment) and overrun with 30,000 of these things, Deutschland has been held up as a renewable energy […]

Full Throttle: No End In Sight for China’s Mammoth Coal-Fired Power Rush

China’s quest for global domination isn’t being fuelled by sunshine and breezes; it’s coal that’s driving the Middle Kingdom’s Imperial and economic onslaught. This is a country that is deadly serious about its economic development and deadly serious about its imperial designs. Which means there’s no place at all for power that can’t be delivered […]
