    The only reason the world has reduced it's pollution output is because of one single country- China!!

    Meanwhile, the glorious West has abandoned all of it's high falutin' targets (only ever lies anyway) because- proxy War! Nothing like a good losing war to make you abandon all of your climate control, and 'Build back Better' political promises now, is there? Suckers.

    While chinkystan remains the most toxic country on the planet, the brown noser comes out with this.

    China calls for rejection of double standards in nuclear non-proliferation

    Source: Xinhua

    Editor: huaxia
    2022-08-03 2302

    The international community should reject double standards in the area of nuclear non-proliferation, head of the Chinese delegation Fu Cong told the 10th Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) on Aug. 2, 2022. (Xinhua)

    The nuclear-powered submarine cooperation between the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia poses severe nuclear proliferation risks, in contravention of the purposes and principles of the NPT, says Fu Cong.

    UNITED NATIONS, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) --

    "The international community should reject double standards in the area of nuclear non-proliferation, a Chinese official told the 10th Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) on Tuesday.

    The nuclear-powered submarine cooperation between the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia poses severe nuclear proliferation risks, in contravention of the purposes and principles of the NPT, said Fu Cong, head of the Chinese delegation.

    This review conference should conduct in-depth discussions on its implications in all aspects, including its challenges to the safeguards system of the International Atomic Energy Agency, in order to firmly uphold the international non-proliferation regime, he said."

    Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying’s Regular Press Conference on August 3, 2022

    "Reuters:

    Chinese military said it will carry out targeted military operations in a few areas around Taiwan.

    Some of these areas encroached into the “internal waters” of Taiwan, which according to UNCLOS is not allowed.

    Taiwan said that this endangers their national security and hinders the freedom of navigation protected under international law. What’s your comment on this?

    Hua Chunying:

    On the actions taken by the Chinese military, I’m sure you have seen the statements made by the spokespersons of the Ministry of National Defense and the PLA Eastern Theater Command. The actions are aimed at deterring the “Taiwan independence” forces, so they are legitimate and necessary. 

    We have never seen any problems with the freedom of navigation in relevant waters. I think what truly needs our attention is how the US military vessels and aircraft would fly thousands of miles all the way from their homeland just to flex muscles at the doorstep of China.

    And also for the US side, maybe it is better not to mention UNCLOS. If the US wants to mention it, please join UNCLOS now first. Taiwan, being a part of China, has no right to claim “internal waters”"

    "AFP:

    Another question on China’s military exercises around Taiwan. Japan has said that some of the military drills are taking place in the Japanese exclusive economic zone (EEZ). In holding these exercises so close to Taiwan, including to the east of Taiwan, is China prepared for the situation to escalate if there’s a misfiring or a close encounter with other vessels or aircraft?

    Hua Chunying:

    The Chinese military has carried out exercises and training in the waters off China’s Taiwan island. This is necessary and legitimate as a response to the major provocation of the US side and the “Taiwan independence” separatist forces and as a step to firmly uphold China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The relevant Chinese authorities have issued safety alerts and navigation warnings in advance.

    Since China and Japan have not yet carried out maritime delimitation in relevant waters, China does not accept the notion of so-called “Japanese EEZ”.

    The Chinese side urges Japan to uphold the one-China principle and the spirit of the four political documents between the two countries and be prudent on the Taiwan question."

    "Reuters:

    Many Chinese people were disappointed when China did not and could not take more concrete actions to prevent Pelosi from making this visit to Taiwan. On hindsight, should China have done more to guide the public to understand more rationally what is best for the development of US-China relations?

    Hua Chunying:

    The Chinese side has made its serious position clear through statements and actions. Once again, people have seen that certain US politicians would put up a self-serving political stunt at the expense of regional peace and stability and the overall interest of China-US relations, whereas China’s behavior shows its commitment to regional peace and stability as well as its own sovereignty and security interests.

    The Chinese side has the firm resolve and will to uphold China’s sovereignty, security and territorial integrity. There should be no questions about our strong capability to do so. Our countermeasures will be strong, effective and resolute, which will be felt gradually and continuously by the US side and the “Taiwan independence” separatists.

    The Chinese people are rational patriots. We have full confidence in the ability of our country and our government to firmly defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity. I recommend that you study closely the century-long history of the Communist Party of China. What challenges haven’t we been through? And look at how far we have come. We have every confidence in our future."

    Maybe they forgot to add that bit to the banal press release. Probably too busy whining about Pelosi.

    Nope. Not to mention that it's rape of Africa and every other vulnerable nation they can get their hands on. Factor those variables into the equation.

    "Who has contributed most to global CO2 emissions?


    • the United States has emitted more CO2 than any other country to date: at around 400 billion tonnes since 1751 (271 years), it is responsible for 25% of historical emissions."


    400,000,000,000 tonnes/271 years

    3,500 years.

    Amongst the oldest nations in the World, the next on the list is China as it has been known to exist for over 3500 years."

    Some might suggest Chines reported data includes all it's emitted CO2 for approx 3,500 ears


    • this is twice more than China – the world's second largest national contributor;"


    50% of 400,000,000,000 = 200,000,000.000 tonnes

    200,000,000.000 tonnes/3,500 years

    = 57,000,000 tonnes/year.

    Approximately 25% of NaGastan annual CO2 Emittance.

    Quod Erat Demonstrandum.

    China has committed to reduce it's emission by xxx in YYY years. If we are all alive then, another discussion may be warranted.

    Some are willing to show their achievements, others prefer not to and hide their data, why?

    I suspect China had a fair share of them, possibly more than NaGastan.

    2019: The UK’s CO2 emissions peaked in the year 1973 and have declined by around 38% since 1990, faster than any other major developed country.
    Any more stupid fucking attempts at diversion?

    You do understand that there is no correlation between a nuclear 'weapon' and a nuclear 'power source' and the the Chinese delegation is just speaking shit.

    Using the Chinese theory, nuclear powered electricity generators fall foul of the Treaty. They do the same thing, use nuclear energy to create electricity.

    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago ...

    Of course he doesn't understand. These Three Stooges lemmings swallow everything they get from the CCP and the Kremlin without question. They are useful idiots and nothing more.

    The 'Chinese delegation' isn't just speaking- it has been doing. Meanwhile, what has the declining US been doing? Oh, that's right- it defanged the EPA.

    Hong Kong slips into second recession since 2019 mass protests

    International financial hub’s economy shrinks 1.4 percent in the second quarter, after previous 3.9 percent decline.

    Hong Kong has tipped back into a technical recession, new government figures showed Monday, weighed down by mounting interest rates, weakened global trade and the city’s continued adherence to strict coronavirus controls.

    Following a year-on-year decrease of 3.9 percent in the first quarter of 2022, the city’s gross domestic product (GDP) again reported a decline in the second quarter on Monday — but with a narrower margin of 1.4 percent — according to advance estimates released by the Census and Statistics Department.

    The downturn is reversing last year’s recovery when the economy enjoyed a 6.3 percent annual growth after the slowdown in 2019 and 2020 when the city was first upended by months of huge, sometimes violent pro-democracy protests, and then the pandemic.

    The Hong Kong government said the economic improvement was smaller than expected due to weak performance in external trade.
    Official statistics released last month showed the value of total exports of goods in the second quarter decreased by 4.2 percent compared with the preceding quarter.

    For the first half of 2022, a visible trade deficit of $206.1bn, equivalent to 8.2 percent of the value of imports of goods, was recorded.
    “Weakened global demand and continued disruptions to cross-boundary land cargo flows between the mainland and Hong Kong weighed heavily on Hong Kong’s exports,” the government said Monday.

    Monetary policy tightening by major central banks around the world is expected to dampen global economic growth significantly, while quarantine-free travel between Hong Kong and mainland China is yet to have a clear timetable under Beijing’s strict adherence to its zero COVID-19 policy.

    The financial hub’s new leader John Lee said his government would soon announce further shortening of mandatory hotel quarantine for overseas arrivals, according to an interview with the Hong Kong Economic Journal published on Monday.

    “Connecting with the world and with the mainland, we shall do both and they are not contradictory,” Lee told the newspaper.

    “I understand that one of Hong Kong’s competitiveness lies in its international connections.”
    In following China’s zero COVID-19 policy, Hong Kong has been largely cut off from the rest of the world for more than two years.

    It still has some of the world’s strictest restrictions, including a week-long quarantine for arrivals and a ban on group gatherings with more than four people.

    Local media recently reported that the government was mulling resuming quarantine-free travel for overseas arrivals in November, when the city is hoping to resuscitate its international image with a finance summit and the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.

    It does make me wonder, you know- so much of China's vast and increasing wealth seems to be going to infrastructural investment, wage growth, and things that actually help people. Ours seems to go to make the already rich even richer, and wage growth and infrastructural investment are basically stagnant.

    No it's called being an obsequious chinky brown noser, like yourself.

    The Chinese have caused untold poverty and starvation around the world with their predatory loan sharking and the pillaging of other peoples' resources.

    It is not brown nosing to point out the Facts. It just makes obsequious apologists like you feel uncomfortable.
    Considering you are a typical denizen of the lower echelons that are being held back by this 'make the rich richer' philosophy, it is actually quite humorous.

    Where in my article above, that you quoted, are:

    "nuclear-powered electricity generators", discussed or statements made?

    Which "treaty" are you referring to?

    The "nuclear power source" referred to, is planned to be placed in a submarine. A weapon of war. Not an onshore civilian "nuclear-powered electricity generation station". The management of which, will be military, not civilian.

    There doesn't appear to be any civilian "nuclear-powered electricity generation stations" actually built presently in OZ.

    One "research civilian nuclear-powered",

    "As of 2018, Australia has one operating nuclear reactor, the OPAL research reactor at Lucas Heights which supplies the vast majority of Australia's nuclear medicine."

    Nuclear power in Australia

    "A resurgence of interest in nuclear power was prompted by Prime Minister John Howard in 2007 in response to the need to move to low-carbon methods of power generation in order to reduce the effects of global warming on Australia.

    In 2015, South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill initiated a Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission to investigate the state's future role in the nuclear fuel cycle.

    As of 2018 there are three active uranium mines, Ranger in Northern Territory, Olympic Dam in South Australia, and Beverley with Four Mile in South Australia. The Royal Commission determined that there was no case for the introduction of nuclear power to the electricity grid in South Australia, but it did not consider its potential interstate. In its final report of May 2016, the Royal Commission recommended that prohibitions preventing the development of nuclear power plants nationally should be repealed.

    In 2017, former Prime Minister Tony Abbott advocated for legislation to be changed to allow the construction of nuclear power plants in Australia.[3] The former Deputy Premier of New South Wales, John Barilaro, has also been urging for debate on the prospect of nuclear power in Australia, including the revisiting of Jervis Bay as a prospective site for a nuclear power plant.[4][5]

    In November 2017, Senator Cory Bernardi presented the Nuclear Fuel Cycle (Facilitation) Bill 2017 in the Senate, with the intention of repealing existing prohibitions preventing the establishment of nuclear power in Australia.[6]

    Nuclear-powered submarines

    On 15 September 2021, following the signing of a security partnership named AUKUS between Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom, it was announced that Australia would develop nuclear-powered submarines, using US and British technology.[2""
