As the USA and Europe retreat from prosperity, India seems determined to overtake China, with a 

 

1) 400-million-metric ton boost to coal production in the next TWO years, plus

2) Massive relaxation of environmental rules and other incentives to boost coal mining and industry.

 

India relaxes environment rules for coal mines, citing heatwaves

 

India has relaxed environmental compliance rules for coal mines seeking to ramp up production as power outages exacerbate a sweltering heatwave, a government notice showed.

 

In a letter dated May 7, 2022, seen by AFP, the Environment Ministry said, it has allowed a “special dispensation” to the Ministry of Coal to relax certain requirements—like public consultations—so mines could operate at increased capacities. 

 

The relaxation comes after it received a request from the Ministry of Coal “stating that there is huge pressure on domestic coal supply in the country, and all efforts are being made to meet the demand of coal for all sectors”.

 

Most of its needs are met by domestic producers, with a record 777 million metric ton mined in the fiscal year to the end of March.

 

The shortfall is imported from countries, such as Russia, Indonesia, Australia and South Africa.

 

The government says, it plans to increase domestic coal production to 1.2 billion metric ton in the next two years to support a post-COVID pandemic economic recovery.

 

Despite a commitment to increase its renewable energy capacity to 175 gigawatts by 2022 and 500 gigawatts by 2030, Coal and Mines Minister Pralhad Joshi said Friday, May 13, 2022, India’s coal needs are set to double by 2040.

What can I say RIP Net-Zero

Fortunately, there is no reason to go to Net Zero.

There is no need to reduce a benign gas, which is essential for life, like CO2.

India is not quite stupid enough to go solar, because it cannot afford solar, and it prefers to have electricity at night when the sun is not shining, because it certainly cannot afford batteries to provide electricity while the sun is sleeping.

 

BATTERY SYSTEM CAPITAL COSTS, OPERATING COSTS, ENERGY LOSSES, AND AGING

The Guardian failed to mention India’s growing coal, oil and gas imports from Russia, AT A DISCOUNT.…and Europe’s growing imports of coal, oil and gas from countries other than Russia AT A PREMIUM.

 

China’s coal burn is over 4 billion metric ton per year to 2040, way beyond India’s stated goals.

 

What we need to aim at is Net-Zero Loonies raving about Global Warming/Climate Change.

India will lead the way, with China following close behind.

 

The UK managed to mine 4.5 million metric ton and imported 4.5 million metric ton

Always remember, the more installed MW of wind, solar and batteries, etc., per household, the higher the household electric rates, as proven by Denmark and Germany, the poster children of energy system insanity.

This has been known and written about for about 15 years.

This article introduces a lot of complex concepts that most people would not understand, unless they had engineering degrees and MBAs.

Luckily, figure 2 comes to the rescue

Figure 2 clearly shows, Germany’s ENEGIEWENDE has been a miserable failure, despite 20 years of hype.

It has been extremely costly to German households and the German economy, i.e., the FCOE has been very high.

The authors should have estimated the German FCOE as a methodology example for other countries. It would have greatly improved their article.

A Future with Energy Prices Tied to Gold

Germans, and all of Europe, have been living in la-la-land, due to plentiful, low-cost oil, gas and coal from Russia, at extremely low prices, i.e., the FCOE of ANY ADDITIONAL ENERGIEWENDE is about to significantly increase RIGHT NOW.

The US idea of “Russia must not be allowed to win” is easy to say for the energy-sufficient US

It is total BS for energy/other-resource-starved Europe.

The US can afford to use corrupt, dysfunctional, oligarchic Ukraine, as a proxy  to "weaken Russia"

Europe cannot.

Europe will have a much higher FCOE, and will be at a significant competitive disadvantage vs the rest of the world, going forward.

China and India are increasing their consumption of coal, oil and gas, regardless of whatever COP.

Russia is supplying most of those increases.

China is planning to expand BRISC with more members, as a counterweight to the US/EU

It is well-known, tele-marketers purchase lists of names of people who buy certain goods, such as certain types of clothes, and sell the lists to other companies who sell similar clothes, who then send THEIR catalogs to YOUR house.

 

Law-enforcement and intelligence agencies geo-track record mobile phone conversations and mobile phone movements, to nab criminals and terrorists.

 

There are companies that collect geo-tracking data and sell the data.

Telemarketers, or anybody, can purchase the data of each person's mobile phone.

 

The data provides detailed information regarding where YOUR phone, or tens of thousands of phones, travelled over a chosen period

of time, and how long the phones stayed at each location.

 

A video was prepared, with input from a private geo-tracking company, which used the geo-tracking data of at least 2000 MULES in five swing states, during the 2020 Election

 

People, called MULES, were used to pick up PREPARED ballots at ballot preparation centers, run by “non-profits”, and deliver the ballots (mostly late at night) to various DROP BOXES, around the clock.

 

The drop boxes had video cameras, as required by law, far enough away, so no one could make out much details.

Zuckerberg, et al., CEO of Facebook, donated about $400 million from his own wealth to finance the installation of drop boxes all over the US.

 

Click to download the video to watch the details. The first part of the video are clips from 2020 television news shows, and talking heads. You can skip those and fast forward to watch an explanation by experts regarding how the data was gathered and processed.

It was found, after a lot of data filtering analysis:

 

On a typical day, a MULE visits multiple ballot preparation centers to pick up prepared ballots, and delivers them to many drop boxes, in small batches, about 3 to 10 ballots at a time, to avoid stuffing suspicions.

Sometimes Mules take a picture of the drop box and/or ballots, to prove the ballots were delivered, and to get paid up to $20/ballot.

 

The filtering criteria of a MULE “delivery trip” are to:

 

1) Visit at least 10 drop boxes.

2) Deposit at least 5 ballots/drop box.

 

Many mules visit many more drop boxes, but were instructed not to deposit more than 10 ballots, to avoid stuffing suspicions.

 

The data analysts used 4 MILLION minutes of videos at drop boxes, in all US states.

It turns out some drop boxes had no video cameras, or had video cameras, but they were turned off.

 

The table shows, in Michigan, there were 500 MULES, who each visited an average of 50 drop boxes, and deposited an average of 5 ballots per drop box, as recorded on videos at drop boxes. All five state were credited to Biden, but the drop box totals exceeded Biden’s margin, i.e., all five states should have been credited to Trump, which would have re-elected him.

 

Remember, all five states stopped the counting at about 10 pm on Election Night, because Trump was just too far ahead. Something had to be done.

Elections in Europe

 

In Germany, 85 million people, and France 75 million people, there are 

 

No drop boxes

No mail-in ballots

No ballot harvesting

No early voting

 

Every CITIZEN has a personal identity card with a unique number

The cards of non-citizens are identical, but have a different color; THEY DO NO VOTE

 

A passport, which has the same bio information, can be used instead of an identity card

The passports of non-citizens have a different color

 

The identity cards and passports are very difficult to forge.

 

Your address on the card determines your location to vote

There are NO REGISTERED VOTER LISTS

 

No machines and computers are used, by LAW

All ballots are hand counted

The count takes about 2 to 3 days to complete, as was demonstrated in Franc a few weeks ago.

 

The above should be the US national standard for all elections, including state and local elections

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
