China’s Building a Massive Number of New Coal Plants

Post by Aemilius »

"Air pollution is responsible for about 2 million deaths in China per year"

"China says it wants to be a leader in green energy, but it's really leading the world in black energy—specifically coal. In this episode of China Uncensored, we look at China's massive buildup of its coal infrastructure, why it sees coal as essential to its economic and national security, and how its reliance on coal fits into its climate goals."

"An executive from China's top energy engineering firm said he expects the nation to approve 270 gigawatts of new coal power plants through 2025, more than the entire fleet of coal power plants in the US."

"China's Permitted vs Retired Energy in 2022:
4 gigawatts retired
106 gigawatts to be built"

May all beings be free from suffering and its causes!

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Sarvē mānavāḥ svatantrāḥ samutpannāḥ vartantē api ca, gauravadr̥śā adhikāradr̥śā ca samānāḥ ēva vartantē. Ētē sarvē cētanā-tarka-śaktibhyāṁ susampannāḥ santi. Api ca, sarvē’pi bandhutva-bhāvanayā parasparaṁ vyavaharantu."

Living in the EU I find this hilarious.
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.
