Despite its claims that it would reduce coal use, the Chinese regime has quietly renewed its construction of coal-fired power plants.
The findings were based on recent satellite images showing that the regime has resumed construction on dozens of coal-fired power plants, according to Deutsche Welle. The new construction was exposed in a new report from the Global Energy Monitor, Greenpeace, and the Sierra Club
As Deutsche Welle notes, this goes against the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP’s) own measures in 2012 and 2013 to allegedly slow the growth of its coal industry; and goes against its promise to cap coal consumption. It notes that the CCP has also been putting cash behind more coal-fired plants abroad.
This shows that while the CCP has been paying lip service to “clean energy” and has backed international programs to curb greenhouse gas emissions, it has maintained its own programs for cheap and effective energy.
At the same time, by promoting less profitable and less effective energy programs in Europe and elsewhere, the CCP has been taking a road that could allow it to dominate the market.
These actions tie closely to military strategies outlined in the CCP’s unrestricted warfare systems—specifically to resource warfare and international law warfare (also called “legal warfare”). Environmental warfare combines both of these concepts.
