Dax, the article you posted is from June of last year. The below link, China reveals new subsidy-free solar and wind policy, is from yesterday and from the same website.

China also just said that all non fossil fuel investment must meet a mandate of being cheaper than coal.

See here’s the thing, we don’t know the optimal amount of years old an article should be.  As long as it fits the “this is all a hoax” agenda it’s fair game.

Here you go Dax, even the climate change deniers are publishing articles about climate change being real.

 :lol: Sure thing The Big Tuck.   Have they recently discovered substantially higher volcanic activity under the Antarctic, many times greater than what was known before?   

In other news, 1,500 or so private jets descending on the DAVOS conference, guzzling millions of gallons fossil fuels and spewing tons of carbon into the atmosphere.   While there, their many luxury vehicles will guzzle additional tens of thousands of gallons of fossil fuels, and their luxury accommodations require massive amounts of energy, almost exclusively carbon based in order to provide power and warmth.   Not to mention the agriculture onslaught of carbon needed to provide the many thousands of luxury meals featuring some of the most carbon intensive food products known to the world today. 

One of the primary topics . . . man made climate change.

What makes you believe that the vast majority of people going to the WEF represent or speak on behalf of people who *actually* care about the environment?

Gee trey, I just re-read what I posted and no where in there did I say any of the attendees spoke for anyone.

But a simple cursory review of the attendee list shows a number of people who have told us that we're all gonna die (except them) if we don't quit using fossil fuels, for example - David Attenborough.

Can you please confirm for me that David Attenborough is chartering a private jet to Davos? Thank you.

No I cannot, but he has no problem sharing his (undoubtedly) extremely profound and cutting edge ideas with those that did . . .

But they are "encouraged" to take offsetting measures, ya see . . .
