China’s Coal Output Hits Multi-Year High as Climate Conference Continues
https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2021/11/09/china-coal-output-climate-conference/

Quote
China’s state-run Global Times boasted on Monday – day seven of the COP26 climate conference in Scotland – that coal output has reached “the highest level in recent years,” so China’s vast array of carbon-spewing coal-fired power plants can “ensure energy supply security and residential heating during the winter.”

China, the world’s worst polluter by far, built three times as many coal plants as all other nations combined in 2020. When power shortages and rolling blackouts began hitting China’s industrial centers in the fall of 2021, the Chinese government ordered an “all-out” campaign to “produce as much coal as possible” from both domestic mines and foreign suppliers.

China's coal output is high despite COP26.

Quote
Criticism of China’s “coal addiction” was supposed to be a focus of COP26, as NBC News reported at the outset of the summit, but criticism has been muted while Beijing merrily announced record-breaking coal production.

An “international alliance” to “phase out coal” was formed by COP26 attendees last Thursday – but China and India, the world’s top two coal burners, did not join. The summit produced some general criticism of Asia for being too slow to embrace renewable energy, but the lack of sharp criticism against China is remarkable, considering that China accounts for almost 60 percent of Asia’s coal consumption.

Want to convince me man made climate change is a real issue?  Go yell at China, India, and all the countries in Africa building coal fired plants.  Until then, I hold it's fear mongering in the interest of a power grab.

Start with trade, like President Trump was doing. Nope, Democrats will kneel and suck on China's dick.
