Massive Push For Coal & Nuclear Power Proves China’s Wind Power Investment All For Show

Inscrutable as ever, the Chinese pay plenty of lip service to unreliable wind and solar, but it’s coal and nuclear that are really powering the Middle Kingdom. China’s investment in new coal and nuclear power plants absolutely dwarfs spending on intermittent wind and solar. Indeed, as Dr John Constable details below, the pace of investment […]

Coal Rush: China, Japan & India Back Coal-Fired Future With Hundreds of New Plants

Reports of the ‘death’ of coal have been greatly exaggerated, with the economic powerhouses of Asia – China, Japan and India – building new plants hand over fist.

Nowhere has the collapse been more prominent than in China. Which is at odds with the meme that’s been run by renewable energy zealots for years […]

Reality Check: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar No Substitute for Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

30 years, $trillions in subsidies and yet the combined output of wind and solar amounts to little more than a rounding error. Most sane adults would call that a monumental F-A-I-L.
