  1. @-28m,,”Xi [Chinese premiere] …. isnt he right on [claiming China will not phase out fossil fuels until alt E ready]

    It does not matter what a Chinese authoritarian running gulags ‘says’, whether it makes sense or not. Xi is going say one thing, whatever sounds best for justifying Chinese actions globally, and then instead do whatever he thinks best for CCP short term. and to hell with rest of the world.

    In general this whole [modern dictator said] is amoral. Nobody says ‘well Hitler was good for the economy’ or ‘Stalin was great at industrialization’. But China roles out a new
    bS policy and every says, ‘discuss’. Stop.
