Why China Is No Climate Leader – Since coal is too smoggy to burn, China will turn the coal into chemicals and gas which burns cleaner but emits just as much/or more emissions. There are 46 coal-to-chemical (including coal-to-gas) plants in operation and another 22 under construction that will add another 193 million tons of carbon emissions annually. I wouldn’t trust any data out of China, they are the wild west buckaroo of unbridled capitalism. China is the world’s largest exporter of coal-fired power plant finance and technology. China is actively pushing coal-to-chemical plants abroad. They control 75+% of the world’s solar panels and export them on ships that spew more carbon than all the cars in the world. The graphite they mine for green energy spews into their air and onto their water and crops. Their green energy mineral mines are a living hell. The meme that China is a green leader is fake news pumped out by fake liberals.
