This is how the fraudsters operate.
The International Energy Agency reports that this marks “the first time in 40 years in which there was a halt or reduction in emissions of the greenhouse gas that was not tied to an economic downturn.”
The message for the day was “we can grow the economy without increasing CO2 emissions”
So they made up some completely bogus statistic about CO2 emissions, which have been increasing linearly and were one of the highest on record last year.
There isn’t one smidgen of truth to Joe Romm’s claim. It is nothing but propaganda. China is bringing a new coal plant on line every week.
They change the message every day to fit the current propaganda needs.
More than 1,000 coal-fired power plants are being planned worldwide, new research has revealed.
The huge planned expansion comes despite warnings from politicians, scientists and campaigners that the planet’s fast-rising carbon emissions must peak within a few years if runaway climate change is to be avoided and that fossil fuel assets risk becoming worthless if international action on global warming moves forward.
Coal plants are the most polluting of all power stations and the World Resources Institute (WRI) identified 1,200 coal plants in planning across 59 countries, with about three-quarters in China and India. The capacity of the new plants add up to 1,400GW to global greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of adding another China – the world’s biggest emitter. India is planning 455 new plants compared to 363 in China, which is seeing a slowdown in its coal investments after a vast building programme in the past decade.
