Apparently China is using green energy funds to build 2 coal power plants.
These will burn cleaner than normal ones so that must make it green.
Fron the article.
"SHANGHAI, Aug 4 (Reuters) - A power producer in the city of Tianjin has issued "green bonds" worth 1 billion yuan ($150 million) to finance a
2,000-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant, a move slammed by an environmental group for diverting funds from cleaner projects."
"The 'clean' in clean coal is a relative term. Technology such as ultra-low emissions, albeit producing less air pollutants, is not a solution to
lowering the carbon emissions that endanger our climate," said Huang Wei, a climate and energy campaigner with Greenpeace East Asia in Beijing."
I think the Chinese government knows that you can't burn unicorn farts to make electricity when the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow.
All you need to do is label it green.
