Civilization advances one coal-fired power station at a time

A nice link from Peter in comments. And Australian coal exports will thrive for many decades to come. Pity the public service is the main beneficiary in Queensland.

    Red China ‘supports’ Paris and coal. MSM don’t see a problem.

    But China is just a poor developing country like India, with no technology or manufacturing capability, that’s why they don’t pose a problem.

    The Chinese’re also busily constructing about 60 nuclear power plants.
    We are building 0 of them.
    Who now are the luddite barbarians?

    I think Australia has missed the boat on cheap electricity. A victim of Gaia worship.

    China’s economic growth is driven by all the things it says it wants to get rid of

    … But the driver of upbeat activity “remains all the things that China was trying to get away from like coal, steel,” said Christopher Balding, a professor at Peking University’s HSBC Business School in Shenzhen.

    The Chinese’re also busily constructing about 60 nuclear power plants.

    Any country capable of building SIXTYnuclear power plants is NOT a developing country.
    Even if only half of them actually work they are not a developing country, they have in fact, DEVLOPED.

    Never in the field of taxation has so much been taken from so few to give to so many.
    Apologies to Winston

    We burn coal in our living room fireplace that we collect for freee from our local beach.

    The gas provider during winter tried to keep us on previous rates even though our heating costs were nil, and attempted to insist we were a family of five, even though it’s just the two of us in our 60s in bed by 9.30pm

    We won.
