China Going Dark
China's flirtation with "green" energy is bearing bad fruit:
"Peopleâ€™s Daily government media outlet reported on Sunday that a power
shortage in the north-eastern industrial province of Liaoning was at a
"severe levelâ€, partly due to declining wind power (which has been a
problem in Europe and the UK, along with a shortage of gas)."
See also this.
China is having an energy crisis. Many northern provinces have had to cut traffic signals and street lights, and cut power to elevators in high rise buildings.
In Guangdong they are shutting off air conditioners and lights. Guangdong is deep in the south.
Last July China started a carbon trading market. Is it any wonder?

Can't see how a carbon trading market's going to keep the lights on. But with these problems, anybody who expects them to go along with our CO2 reduction efforts is a complete and utter idiot.

Adding any layer of complexity adds to the cost and reduces the supply. It's unquestionable that it will only make things worse.

Just maybe, they think it'll make them look good in the eyes of the world's crackpot envirowackos. Normally they don't give a rat's patootie for other countrys' opinions, but if their economy is as bad as this article makes it out to be, they'd be well off to have a friend or two.

I'm sure that is it. No doubt they promised the powers that be they would implement a carbon trading scheme in return for a blind eye to the Covid virus.

Well, it's a fer-sherr that Dr. Foochi isn't going to tattle on them...

I don't expect he will.
