RE: World Coal Production Just Had Its Biggest Drop on Record
Coal is the NEW reality in the world, not renewables, the AC lives in wishland where his dreams of bird chomping windmills pollute the countryside:

Forget Paris: 1600 New Coal Power Plants Built Around The World!

When China halted plans for more than 100 new coal-fired power plants this year, even as President Trump vowed to “bring back coal” in America, the contrast seemed to confirm Beijing’s new role as a leader in the fight against climate change.

But new data on the world’s biggest developers of coal-fired power plants paints a very different picture: China’s energy companies will make up nearly half of the new coal generation expected to go online in the next decade.

These Chinese corporations are building or planning to build more than 700 new coal plants at home and around the world, some in countries that today burn little or no coal, according to tallies compiled by Urgewald, an environmental group based in Berlin. Many of the plants are in China, but by capacity, roughly a fifth of these new coal power stations are in other countries.

Over all, 1,600 coal plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries, according to Urgewald’s tally, which uses data from the Global Coal Plant Tracker portal. The new plants would expand the world’s coal-fired power capacity by 43 percent

It doesn't really matter if corporations have drawn up plans for building 1200 new coal plants in China, it's the government that calls the shots and they say no in nearly every province. http://energydesk.greenpeace.org/2017/05...provinces/ add to that China is commited to spending $376bn by 2020 on new renewables projects and it looks likely that coal use has peaked in China. China has had year on year falls in coal use for three years now.

Liberals believe in Santy Clause and the Easter Bunny, and they will use the most ridiculous "evidence" to prove them, especially the delusions of other liberals like Al Gore, the Huffington Post, ect. Or, they will just flat out lie. And by God, you'd better believe in Santy Clause too, or you'll suffer their wrath through temper tantrums and infantile insults.

Hey AC, people live in the REAL world. And that world is not powered by solar panels and windmills. Those things arent practical. Electric cars arent practical for most situations. Coal and ONLY coal (as opposed to sunshine and rainbows) is used to manufacture steel, AC. Did you know that? I bet not. Theres a world of knowledge outside of sitting in a shitty apartment somewhere and posting drivel the whole waking day, everyday. Go find it.

Well the fact is, from the world of knowledge, that steel production is moving away from coke and towards using natural gas https://www.thespec.com/news-story/41903...lace-coke/
"Coke will become all but obsolete in most steelmaking in about a decade, say some industry experts."

We refuse to allow more pipelines like Keystone XL that destroy our climate, threaten communities, and poison water. We have the solutions we need, which is why we’re building solar panels directly in the path of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.


We aim to raise $50,000 to cover the first solar installations in the path of the project on farmland that Nebraskans have refused to sell to TransCanada. The solar panels will be connected to Nebraska’s power grid, generating clean, renewable energy for the state, and local jobs — as opposed to a risky pipeline that would provide little benefit to Nebraskans.

RE: World Coal Production Just Had Its Biggest Drop on Record
Rick Perry tries to make the economic case for coal, screws up the economics part

Experts agree coal is not coming back, but Perry repeated the claim nonetheless.


Given a generous reading, Perry is referring here to Say’s law, also known as the law of markets, which has been rephrased as “supply creates its own demand.” In fact, the classical economic theory could be more accurately rephrased as “the total demand of an economy will meet the amount of supply,” although Keynes and the Depression called Say’s law into rather dramatic question.

The rule does not apply to individual products, such as coal (or horses and buggies, or typewriters).

But Longview is an odd place to tout economic theory: The plant, which went online in 2011, went bankrupt in 2013. At the time, the Wall Street Journal blamed low natural gas prices for the plant’s economic woes. As a merchant plant, Longview sells electricity on the open market and is susceptible to price fluctuations as demand moves to lower-cost options.
Ironically, Perry gave his “little economics lesson” just days after West Virginia University released a report that echoed numerous recent analyses in stating coal demand will not be coming back. The report predicts that demand will remain in the 80-million-ton range through the first part of the next decade and will fall below 80 million tons by 2030 — and it’s not expected to rebound from there. The report attributed the long-term outlook for coal production to low demand overseas, declining productivity in West Virginia’s mines, and a decrease in U.S. coal-fired power plants — which, again, is tied to low-cost natural gas prices as well as increased emissions standards and more economical clean energy. (West Virginia’s biggest utility even announced this week it would invest in two more wind farms.)

The WVU report came out in conjunction with the West Virginia Coal Forum, a state-sponsored event that brings together coal producers, politicians, and researchers to discuss the industry’s future. The state’s beleaguered industry has more friends than ever in the federal government now that Donald Trump is president.

“I think the Department of Energy has been engaged with us around the high-efficiency, low-emission type unit that we are,” Longview’s chief operating officer, Stephen Nelson, told the West Virginia Gazette. “There’s been a lot of interest in looking at coal-fired power plants like Longview as a future for clean coal, and I think that’s his focus.”

As a newer coal plant, Longview is much less carbon-intensive and more efficient than some of its decades-old brethren. But that doesn’t make it clean, pointed out Bill Price, a West Virginia-based organizer for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign.

The UK has pledged to shut all coal fired power stations by 2025.

Trump will get coal production way up.

Coal production is low because there's less demand. Opening the mines with no demand just because 'Merica! is not a good idea at all.
