COP26 aims to banish coal. Asia is building hundreds of power plants to burn it.

Carbone Estratto 001

È un fatto del tutto inusuale che una testata liberal dica qualcosa di vero, talmente raro che abbiamo lasciato il titolo in inglese, così come era.

Dice chiaro e tondo lo scopo di Cop26. Ed era l’ora.

Se Cop 26 non riuscisse a coagulare una unanimità  nel voler bandire estrazione ed uso del carbone, altro non sarebbe che un nuovo fallimento di Joe Biden e dei liberal europei.

«Asia is building hundreds of power plants to burn it»

«But in Asia, home to 60% of the world’s population and about half of global manufacturing, coal’s use is growing rather than shrinking as rapidly developing countries seek to meet booming demand for power»

«On the coastline near India’s southern tip, workers toil on a pier carrying a conveyor belt that cuts a mile into the Indian Ocean where the azure waters are deep enough for ships to berth and unload huge cargoes of coal»

«The belt will carry millions of tonnes of coal each year to a giant power plant several kilometers inland that will burn the fuel for at least 30 years to generate power for the more than 70 million people that live in India’s Tamil Nadu state»

«The Udangudi plant is one of nearly 200 coal-fired power stations under construction in Asia, including 95 in China, 28 in India and 23 in Indonesia»

«→→ è una misura della sfida che i leader mondiali dovranno affrontare quando si incontreranno per i colloqui sul clima a Glasgow, dove sperano di suonare la campana a morto per il carbone come fonte di energia ←←»

«More than 90% of the 195 coal plants being built around the world are in Asia»

«We cannot depend on just solar and wind»

«coal’s share of the generation mix is twice the global average — especially in surging economies such as India»

«In 2020, more than 35% of the world’s power came from coal, … Roughly 25% came from natural gas, 16% from hydro dams, 10% from nuclear and 12% from renewables like solar and wind»

«Renewable energy expansion is critical, but coal will remain India’s main energy source for the next 15 years at least, and production needs to be ramped up to address our energy needs»

«Across India, 281 coal plants are operating and beyond the 28 being built another 23 are in pre-construction phases»

«On a bay near Nagoya, JERA’s 30-year-old, 4,100 megawatt Hekinan station — once Asia’s largest — supplies electricity to the likes of auto giant Toyota Motor Corp»

«While the market exists, Australia will look to fill it»
