    Default Coal Fired Power Plants

    I tried to Snope this but came up empty handed so take it for what it's worth. The actual numbers maybe different but the idea remains.




    • ----





      Subject: Fwd: How many coal plants are there in the world today?




      The EU has 468 - building 27 more... Total 495



      Turkey has 56 - building 93 more... Total
      149

      South Africa has 79 - building 24 more... Total
      103

      India has 589 - building 446 more... Total
      1036

      Philippines has 19 - building 60 more... Total
      79

      South Korea has 58 - building 26 more... Total
      84

      Japan has 90 - building 45 more... Total
      135

      China has 2,363 - building 1,171 more... Total
      3,534

      That’s
      5,615 projected coal powered plants in just

      8 countries.
      USA has 15 - building 0 more...Total
      15
      And Democrat politicians with their "green new deal”


      want to shut down those 15 plants in order to "save”

      the planet.




      This is EXCELLENT!! I knew the rough idea about


      the number of coal plants, but had not yet seen

      actual numbers until now.


      This makes the point. Whatever the USA does or


      doesn’t do won’t make a Tinker’s Dam regarding CO2

      unless the rest of the world — especially China and

      India — does reduce coal-fired power plants, too.
      Green New Deal???

    Welcome to the party. P.S. Don’t tell AOC or any of the other Pinheads. Electric cars are for the most part, charged by burning coal, gas or nuke.

    The mea$ure$ required to $ati$fy AOC and the Green$ can only be implemented in countrie$ who$e population$ have taxable and di$po$able income$, mainly developed and We$tern countrie$ and $ocietie$. Got it?

    Tell AOC and the other like minded morons they need to campaign their "green go$pel" in China, India, Southeast Asia and Africa, fir$t. You know, mi$$ionary work!

    Decades after everyone in this site has gone "West", coal - whether its popularity dips or rises - will still be America's ace card for energy.

    Not sticking up for this ding bat socialist just I dont believe its aoc green new deal plan, though I'm sure its someones. The kenyans admin I would guess. I was just on a natural gas power plant in Connecticut, which will be fully operational in July. This was built right next to the coal plant on the water. The coal plant will be closing in a years time then dismantled. When this is done there will be snother power plant built in its place. This was all in motion before her n her green new deal.

    Any important thing to remember is that the US is the Saudi Arabia of coal. We have more coal than just about anywhere else in the world. I’m sure we’re willing to sell it to them at a nice little profit. Coal also makes steel production very profitable and as we get more steel production back, we’re going to need coal fired furnaces.

    Associating coal with the environment is an interesting way to garner green votes, but the effort is hardly worth it.

    The real cause of coal's death is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Natural gas for years has offered a cleaner, cheaper alternative to coal. Renewable energy from wind and solar is more affordable than ever. The Obama administration put in place environmental policies aimed at curbing pollution and combating climate change that made coal burning more costly.


    The changing structure of electricity markets also has hastened the collapse of coal power. Increasing competition in regional electricity grids has left many old coal plants unable to go head to head against solar, wind and natural gas – all of which have extremely low operating costs
    .
    Natural gas, as relates to coal, is a disruptive technology and is having the same local effects on jobs that hit the rust belt.


    Today, as skeleton crews of about a dozen people remain at each of the shuttered coal plants, the value of the properties, which include miles of riverfront land, has tumbled.

    “We’re talking about several hundred million dollars” in taxable value, said David Gifford, the county auditor.


    For the most part, even those here who wish the Trump administration had done more to keep the two plants open don’t fault the president for their closing. At least no more than they blame state officials, or Obama-era regulations, or the utility company that closed them, or environmental groups, or the unforgiving economics of the marketplace.
