And on this, John Kerry and the rest of the envirowackos are silent.
I wonder why.....

https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2021/02/03/china-built-three-times-as-much-coal-power-in-2020-as-the-rest-of-the-world-combined/


SNIP:
A joint report released Wednesday by the U.S.-based Global Energy Monitor (GEM) and Helsinki-based Center for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) found China built over three times as much coal-fired electrical power capacity in 2020 as the rest of the world combined.

The GEM/CREA report found China’s coal power capacity grew by a net 28.8 gigawatts. China built coal plants at such a frantic pace, to provide cheap power for its swelling industrial capacity, that some of its coal plants might never repay their construction and maintenance costs:

China approved the construction of a further 36.9 GW of coal-fired capacity last year, three times more than a year earlier, bringing the total under construction to 88.1 GW. It now has 247 GW of coal power under development, enough to supply the whole of Germany.

Hasn't John Kerry been silent about a decade and a half now? Probably windsurfing and eating ketchup...

I did have chicken breasts last night, thawed in the meat drawer
snowing currently, hopefully done by 9am so I can clean the driveway before heading south

Alaska in seven hours, and you're not even taking the most direct rout? You are heading south and circling the globe?

Tesla Seems A Little Shook Over The Chevy Bolt (jalopnik.com)

The 2022 Chevy Bolt and Bolt EUV debuted this week, and a big part of Chevy’s sell on both cars was price. The Bolt will start at $31,995, while the Bolt EUV will start at $33,995, each several thousand dollars less than their Tesla Model 3 and Model Y competitors. Except now Tesla is cutting its prices (again).

U.N. says carbon-cutting pledges by countries nowhere near enough (cnbc.com)

The world’s pledges so far are only enough to reduce global carbon dioxide emissions to less than 1% below 2010 levels by 2030.
The world has to cut carbon pollution 45% below 2010 levels to achieve the more stringent official Paris goal of limiting future warming to another half a degree (0.3 degrees Celsius) from now, U.N. officials said.
“We are very, very far from where we need to be,” U.N. climate chief Patricia Espinosa said. “What we need to put on the table is much more radical and much more transformative than we have been doing until now.”




This stuff really annoys me for obvious reasons.  It's time to face up to reality and quite pretending pledges are going to change anything.  And the pledges are not nearly enough anyway according to the models.  This simply isn't happening.

Face reality.
