Coal Plants Under Construction In China & India Rising At Alarming Levels

Aside from lifting billions out of abject poverty, through the use of cheap, efficient and reliable fossil-fuel based energy, (smart) China and India recognise the growing manufacturing vacuum left by a “global warming” obsessed West destroying their jobs and industries with draconian climate policy and overreaching green regs.

So much for Paris!

The above analysis is from Energy Transition Advisors, a green propaganda group, who are, somewhat naively, alarmed about what is going on in China and India.

According to their Global Coal Plant Tracker, this is the coal fired capacity in the pipeline:

The ‘world’s most respected science journal’ Nature starts on the road to Perdition

Eisenhower warned of the corruption of science with politics in 1960.

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocation, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet in holding scientific discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

– President Eisenhower 1960

Watts Up With That?

nature-screws-themselves

I never in my life thought I’d see this article, never. I witnessed the corruption of National Geographic and Scientific American into political cesspools, but I never thought this would happen. Nature has sunk to the depths of blatant political advocacy. They don’t even seem to read their own writing, because the first line says:

In March 2011, this publication suggested that the US Congress seemed lost in the “intellectual wilderness”.

The Republicans had taken over the House of Representatives, and one of the early acts of the chamber’s science committee was to approve legislation that denied the threat of climate change. As it turns out, this was just one tiny piece of a broader populist movement that was poised to transform the US political scene. Judging by the current presidential campaign, when it comes to reason, decency and use of evidence, much of the country’s political system seems to…

Conflicts Of Interest At The Committee On Climate Change

I’ll second “Old Brew’s” comment :

“How obvious does it have to be before people realize they’re being taken for a massively expensive ride by the Greenblob, hiding behind their figleaf of ‘climate change’?”

The Mail on Sunday today reveals the extraordinary web of political and financial interests creating dozens of eco-millionaires from green levies on household energy bills.

A three-month investigation shows that some of the most outspoken campaigners who demand that consumers pay the colossal price of shifting to renewable energy are also getting rich from their efforts.

YES! The Climate Changes

climate-changes

People who follow the “climate change” mantra know exactly what to think and feel about the topic but have no concept of the facts. This is problematic as the inability to recognise and compare historical evidence against real-world data, ferments a groupthink hysteria that global warming climate change is unprecedented and caused solely by evil humans.

This is simply not true. Climate change, extreme or otherwise, has been happening for billions of years, and yes, well before industrialisation.

Climate group-thinkers are very strong on opinion and shonky on facts. They know what they should think about global warming climate change, but have no idea why they should think it.

This five minute US congressional video highlights brilliantly the fact-free, pseudoscientific groupthink zealotry that has so dangerously infected the gullible, and inspired a trillion dollar faith-based industry we know as “climate change”.

Be sure to watch this ‘ouch’ moment c/o Barack Obama’s Chief Climate Advisor… 🤔

Obama’s Chief Climate Adviser on 1920s global warming: ‘It is a crisis we’re trying to address’ – YouTube

The article, which was written by the Associated Press, appeared in scores of newspapers around the country in November of 1922. A researcher named John Lockwood found the article archived at the Library of Congress in 2007.

The article was based on a report that appeared in the November 1922 edition of the Monthly Weather Review. The original report says an expedition was sent by the Norwegian Department of Commerce to the Arctic Circle to survey land and to make “oceanographic investigations.” According to excerpts from the report:

“The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.

“Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. 

“Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

“Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.”

Ice conditions were exceptional. In fact, so little ice has never before been noted … This is the farthest north ever reached with modern oceanographic apparatus.

“…It is of interest to note the unusually warm summer in Arctic Norway and the observations of Capt. MartinIngebrigstaen, who has sailed the eastern Arctic for 54 years past.

“He says that he first noted warmer conditions in 1918, that since that time it has steadily gotten warmer, and that to-day the Arctic of that region is not recognizable as the same region of 1868 to 1917.”

Washington Post story from 1922 stating the Arctic was getting warmer and ice was melting.

Yes! The Climate Changes, even when your SUV is garaged.

Stop These Anti-Coal Fanatics (Misanthropists) Now

“Incredible, to have green groups campaign to keep the poorest people poor. And to cost Australians money and jobs while doing so.”

No surprise, as Green groups are proud misanthropists who despise humans – except themselves of course.

India warns that green groups – backed with American money – are making investment in Australian mines too hard.

So what is the Turnbull Government doing to save these mines and jobs?

A highly orchest­rated, secretly foreign-funded group of Australian environ­mental activists ­oppos­ing the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland has “dampened” ­Indian investment interest in Australia and received heated criticism from the federal ­Coalition and Queensland Labor governments.

CoalLoaderIndian Power Minister Piyush Goyal told The Australian yesterday the years of legal challenges to the vast Carmichael coal project, now revealed to have been funded by multi-million-dollar foundations in the US, “will certainly dampen future investments” from India…

After meeting Mr Goyal, federal Resources Minister Matt Canavan, who has previously criticised the campaign to block the Indian project, said: “We need to be able to take advantage of the demand for coal in Asia.”…

Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy Scam Exposed

“Climate Change” – what a wonderful way to fleece unlimited and unregulated funds from taxpayers under the guise of “saving the planet”.

No To Coal Fired Power: How South Australia’s Labor Party Killed Reliable Power Supply

Their “global warming” ideology lends hatred toward coal, yet are completely reliant on the giant extension cord to Victoria’s coal to keep the lights on.

Welcome to insanity.

PA Pundits - International

Bolt New 01By Andrew Bolt ~

A new letter shows how South Australia’s Labor government, maddened by its global warming religion, refused a deal to save its last coal-fired power station. Result: electricity bills shot up and the whole state lost its power.

Rebecca Puddy:

The Weatherill Labor government has released a letter ­detail­ing negotiations with the last coal-fired power station in South Australia, after a 16-month battle to keep it secret.

It … shows that, five months before announcing the closure of its Port Augusta power station, Alinta Energy wrote to the government seeking help to increase shareholder confidence for capital investment in the face of a deteriorating wholesale energy market.

It builds on revelations by The Australian that Alinta had ­approached the government in January last year for help, with plans to expand the life of the power plant and mine to 2028.

But the government rejected its ­approach and…
