A coal plant in China
While China is funding the radical green movement here in America, the country is doubling its fossil fuel usage despite its prior commitments to foolish globalist elites.
Earlier today The Gateway Pundit reported on the the radical green groups that are funded by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). These leftist groups are destroying America’s capacity to lead the world in the 21st century.

But China has no intention of cutting down on their own greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, China is doubling down on its fossil fuel usage.
China is the world’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gasses and a premier driver of global warming. This realization has had China’s president Xi pledge to be carbon neutral by 2060, yet, most affluent regions in China have doubled down on investments and usage of fossil fuels.
Guangdong, Zhejiang, and Shanghai have invested heavily in the development of low-carbon technologies and renewables, but also in fossil fuel projects, especially gas, according to a South China Morning Post report, on August 22.
Due to issues with youth unemployment and the real estate market crisis, slow growth in China is pushing authorities to use smokestack industries to boost economic output.
The push in coal power usage has the nonprofit Global Energy Monitor worried. They estimate that as of July 2022, China permitted the building of 258 coal-power stations. Once completed, they would generate 290 gigawatts of power, more than 60% of the world’s total capacity under development.
It seems that coal and gas are the only ways for governments and provinces to avoid power shortages, as China’s power grid prevents surplus energy from being transported across the regions due to power grid inefficiencies.
