China told Biden climate czar John Kerry that it would march to its own drummer on the issue of global warming. The South China Morning Post wrote that “Beijing has rebuffed American calls to make more public pledges on climate change before a UN climate summit in November, insisting it should follow its own plan rather than bowing to US pressure, according to a person familiar with the two countries’ negotiations.”
Without China’s subscription to the model endorsed by the Paris accord, Biden’s “climate change” program is effectively dead on arrival. “China is the world’s largest [carbon] emitter, accounting for 27 per cent of global emissions.” Beijing effectively wields unilateral veto power over the targets set by climate science should it ignore its mandates or pursue unrelated or separate goals.
The New York Times gloomily blamed politics for the impending collapse of yet another Biden flagship program. “China Tells Kerry Strained Ties Could Sink Climate Cooperation”
At a press briefing on Tuesday (April 27), the director-general of the environment ministry’s climate change department, Mr Li Gao, said that new coal-fired power plants provided a source of employment and helped stabilise the grid with a predictable source of energy.
“They mainly help guarantee people’s livelihoods, and guarantee the flexibility and security of our energy grid,” he said, adding that such plants may not run at “full capacity”
One of the things the Chinese coal plants run are factories making solar panels for the West. As the WSJ wrote, Behind the rise of U.S. solar power lies a mountain of Chinese coal.
the West faces a conundrum as it installs panels on small rooftops and in sprawling desert arrays: Most of them are produced with energy from carbon-dioxide-belching, coal-burning plants in China….
For years, China’s low-cost, coal-fired electricity has given the country’s solar-panel manufacturers a competitive advantage, allowing them to dominate global markets.
Chinese factories supply more than three-quarters of the world’s polysilicon, an essential component in most solar panels…
Chinese authorities have built an array of coal-burning power plants in sparsely populated areas such as Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia to support polysilicon manufacturers and other energy-hungry industries.
