We have a crisis in India, and it is not with the climate. Power plants for the world’s second largest consumer of coal are running out of stock, leaving a billion people at the risk of blackouts and forcing industries to close facilities.

To resolve the situation, the Indian government has authorized increased importation of thermal coal, removed all import duty on coal, is reopening hundreds of closed coal mines, and has asked existing domestic mines to produce at unprecedented rates. The country has even canceled dozens of commercial trains to make room for the freight trains that carry coal.

Coal-fired plants produce more than 70 percent of all electricity consumed by India’s 1.3 billion people. Indicating greater demand, coal-based electricity registered a 3.12 percent increase in March 2022 compared to a year ago.  Coal shortages can have a devastating effect on the Indian economy.

    ‘If we have available back-up power, let’s keep it online just in case. I’m not taking chances.’

    Any increased reliance on coal would be embarrassing for the Government after making promises to cut the UK’s emissions of harmful greenhouse gases linked to global warming.
    – – –
    Power cuts would also be embarrassing…

    ‘harmful greenhouse gases linked to global warming’ — which India doesn’t believe and/or isn’t interested in.

    ….. A lot has been built on hope. the 3 little bigs used straw, wood and brick. Maybe there was no hope then but the wolf is still there – and coming back. Aye indeed, for sure, to be sure: in Germany since the Border fences came down the wolf has fairly spread around …. Moral of the story ?

    The government’s energy strategy is ‘hopes.’

    The two others should announce, “We have found buyers for our boilers in Cape Town and Sao Paulo.”

    China and India have both ignored the AGW scam. They are building dozens of coal fired plants.
