Green groups and World Bank want to see the “poor of the world” even poorer!

Posted: August 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

So-called “Environmental” groups and the World Bank along with the U.S. Export-Import Bank want to see the poor of the world remain that way, indefinitely!

Why would these groups of disgusting human-hating elitists want that?

Maybe it has something to do with their cheap labour and abundance of Natural Resources that they have basically made billions of dollars off?

“Oh No” would say the Friends of the Earth or Greenpeace or all the other fake environmental jack boots who try and keep poor countries in the pockets of big Commerce. It’s all about the carbon spewing fossil fuelled electricity that coal plants would generate to supply these countries with affordable energy!

After all, how would a population be “controlled” if they could get better education, make a better living and have a better quality of life that may deny these multi national parasites from using these poor countries as “slave camps”!

“Keep the people disenfranchised, keep them poor and keep them hopeless………….and you will control them”

Now that sounds more like what these foul enterprises are pushing for!

Keeping the Poor in the Dark 

AUGUST 8, 2013 4:00 AM

They want to produce electricity from coal, and the developed world says no.

Keep the poor in the dark: That’s the aim of some of the world’s biggest and most influential environmental groups. And last month, both the U.S. Export-Import Bank and the World Bank helped advance it. Out of concern for climate change, they announced, they would restrict financing for coal-fired power plants.

On July 18, the Ex-Im Bank’s board of directors voted to halt U.S. financing for the Thai Binh 2 power plant, a 1,200-megawatt coal-fired facility in northern Vietnam. Two days earlier, the World Bank said that it would limit financing of coal-fired generation projects to “rare circumstances.”

 

The groups that opposed the Vietnamese project include Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace USA, Pacific Environment, the Center for International Environmental Law, and the Center for Biological Diversity. In a letter to President Obama, they protested that the Thai Binh project would “emit unacceptable air pollution that will worsen climate disruption.”

Vietnam, population 92 million, currently has about 26,000 megawatts of installed generation capacity. Last year, it produced just 120 terawatt-hours of electricity. Compare that with Germany, which has a smaller population — 81 million — but more than six times as much generation capacity (153,000 megawatts). In 2012, Germany produced about 610 terawatt-hours of electricity, five times as much as Vietnam. That electric use translates almost directly into GDP. Germany’s is $3.25 trillion. That is almost ten times as great as Vietnam’s GDP of $326 billion. And it’s no coincidence that Germany — which, by the way, is building 11,000 megawatts of new coal-fired power plants — is emitting about six times as much carbon dioxide (815 million tons last year) as is Vietnam (130 million tons in 2012).

 

Love coal or hate it, the fuel has become the go-to source of energy for the developing world because it is cheap and abundant. In addition, deposits are widely dispersed geographically and they are not controlled by any OPEC-like entities. It’s also an excellent fuel for generating electricity. Small wonder, then, that coal continues to be the world’s fastest-growing energy source. Last year, global coal use jumped by the equivalent of 2 million barrels of oil burned per day. That’s three times the growth seen in non-hydro renewables (solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal), which grew by 600,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. It also exceeded the growth in both oil (up by 900,000 barrels per day) and natural gas (up by nearly 1.5 million barrels of oil equivalent per day).

The fundamental difference between rich countries like Germany and the U.S. and poor countries like Vietnam and Pakistan (which, by the way, has a population of 193 million and just 23,500 megawatts of electricity-generation capacity) is the availability of cheap, abundant, reliable electricity.
