I’M SURE GRETA THUNBERG WILL BE SHOWING UP TO SHAME THEM NEVER: China Ramps Up Coal Power Again, Despite Pressure to Cut Emissions. “China is set to add new coal-fired power plants equivalent to the European Union’s entire capacity in a bid to boost its slowing economy, despite global pressure on the world’s biggest energy consumer to rein in carbon emissions. Across the country, 148 gigawatts of coal-fired plants are either being built or are about to begin construction, according to a report from Global Energy Monitor, a non-profit group that monitors coal stations. The current capacity of the entire EU coal fleet is 149 GW.”

And rising.”
