But Global Warming is real and even CHINA has agreed to be carbon-neutral in the next 40 years!

Bull****.

Including decommissions, China’s coal-fired fleet capacity rose by a net 29.8 GW in 2020, even as the rest of the world made cuts of 17.2 GW, according to research released on Wednesday by Global Energy Monitor (GEM), a U.S. think tank, and the Helsinki-based Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA).

They have roughly 250GW of additional capacity under construction and last year added more than 35GW of new approvals.

The rest of the world has, on balance, decreased coal-fired energy output.

Unfortunately with the exception of hydroelectric, which is a renewable source, so-called "green energy" is not reliable.  Base load generation must be reliable and peak load generation must be dispatchable when needed in each and every case.  If it's cost-effective to use renewable sources for "fill" while the others remain available that's fine, but it almost-never is.

Why do we keep putting up with the lies coming from both China and our own government?

This isn't about "Global Warming" it is about destroying the United States and other Western nations.

Behind every unit of GDP is a unit of energy.

Like it or not, that's physics and there's nothing you can do about it.

So tell me once again why you haven't used every single global warming screamer as a boat anchor given that their real intent is to destroy all western nations in favor of the Communist Chinese.
