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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Second Rate Wind Power Side-lined In China’s Coal-Fired Economic Miracle

Despite claims by wind and solar acolytes that China is well on its way to an all renewables powered future, apparently, the black stuff still matters. A lot. A month or so back, Beijing banned Australian coal imports (dozens of ships loaded with Australian coal are sitting stuck in harbours along China’s south-east coast). Blackouts […]

China Crisis: Beijing’s Ban On Australian Coal Leaves Millions Freezing In The Dark

Millions of Chinese are learning just how important coal-fired power is to their health, safety and comfort, thanks to Beijing’s ban on Australian coal imports. High-quality Australian coal has helped fuel China’s miraculous industrial growth over the last generation. But the escalation of a trade spat between the PRC and the Morrison led Federal Government […]

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. The pattern across Asia is unmistakable; unreliable wind and solar have been snubbed in favour of coal-fired power plants, with new nuclear plants running a close second. […]

Fact Check: Debunking Claims That Britain Is 100% Wind Powered (Try Gas, Nuclear, Coal & Woodchips)

  It only takes a couple of windy days and the loons start heralding the end of coal-fired power. But, of course, when calm weather inevitably sets in, the same lunatics run silent until the next gale hits. A bit like the gambler who tells you all about his wins, but never about his losses. […]
