In some countries ’emissions’ obsessed leaders stumble around looking for non-existent net-zero pathways to their imaginary climate heaven. But India’s recent approach towards fossil utilization can be summed up in three words: “No Holds Barred”, says the author.

India is on the way to becoming a fossil fuel-based energy powerhouse of the 21st century, says Vijay Jayaraj @ The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF).

India’s developmental goals for the future are quite ambitious. They ought to be: From tackling the surging poverty rates to providing affordable utilities, the country faces a steep challenge.

The key to achieving any of its developmental goals is a strong energy sector.

India is the third largest energy consuming nation and is following the fossil fuel pathway (like the West did during the 20th century) to achieve energy independence in the near future.

Relationship to Paris Agreement

The transformation of the energy sector in 21st century India is a remarkable story and it can be singularly credited to fossil fuels, especially coal and oil. The predominantly fossil-based energy sector has grown by leaps and bounds in recent decades.

But ever since the country’s membership in the Paris agreement, and its decision to pursue billions of dollars’ worth Renewable projects (like the Asia’s largest Solar Plant that was inaugurated this week), there were doubts and uncertainty surrounding how the country would move ahead with its fossil fuel sector.

Green crusaders believed that India’s inclusion in the agreement and their proclivity to large renewable projects would make them a major player in the global effort to offset fossil fuel dependency.

However, that has not been the case. Anti-fossil fuel lobbyists and international bodies like the UN have had zero success in limiting India’s coal use.

This is because the country’s “Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)”—a set of promises that were pledged as a part of Paris agreement—clearly states that the country has sovereign rights to excavate, import, export, and use fossil fuels, and that it will not be determined by non-binding treaties made with UN or other developed countries.

    So the third largest energy consuming nation means it has joined the other 4 largest energy consuming countries in ignoring the UN & EU policies, yet our politicians keep on course to impoverish their own countries. At what point do people start wondering about their actions?

  2. Chaswarnertoo says:

    Zero carbon policies for the UK make zero world difference. Our ‘leaders’ are insane.

    May the mass insanity stop there, and they begin to prosper accordingly. It is just simple human nature to reproduce like rabbits when one’s existence is under duress.

    INDIA also understands the meaning of four other words pertinent to wind/solar utilisation: “Go woke, go broke.”

    The west turn left sails fatally naive and romanticize-D pitch.

    The western left have carefully crafted their camp aim with inspiration from the India they IMAGINE (which is to be neither confused nor conflated with the real thing).
