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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Full-Steam Ahead: China & Japan Snub Intermittent Wind & Solar to Build Hundreds of New-Age Coal-Fired Plants

One hackneyed myth propounded by RE zealots is that China is well on its way to an all wind and sun powered future. The reality differs. Instead of worshipping nature’s wonder fuels, China is flat out building hundreds of high-efficiency, low-emissions coal-fired plant, in a concerted effort to drag itself out of the grinding agrarian […]
