NO… China is not cutting CO2 emissions

I sense confusion over a recent announcement by the ChiComs.

Here’s a sample headline:

This does not mean that China is reducing CO2 emissions. Instead, China will be trying to eliminate sulfur and nitrous oxide emissions that contribute to smog. This can be accomplished by actually turning on smokestack scrubbers and reducing inefficient, small-scale coal combustion.

  1. Remember what Mao said, “Talk, talk, fight, fight”. Neither China nor India will mend its ways, nor stick to binding commitments in the next 30-50 years. Look at the number of coal fired power plants being commissioned every year. In that time period, the irreversible transfers of enormous wealth will have already taken place, and First World workers will have eroded into the worlds lowest common denominators. Follow the money and jobs, and watch additional wealth concentration. Pollution abatement is a part of Mao’s “talk, talk” tactic.
