    Chinese factories close as drought hits hydropower

    Shutdowns add to economic strains as President Xi Jinping gears up to extend his time in power.



    Factories in China’s southwest have shut down after reservoirs used to generate hydropower ran low in a worsening drought, adding to economic strains at a time when President Xi Jinping is trying to extend his position in power.
    Companies in Sichuan province – including makers of solar panels, cement and urea – closed or reduced production after they were ordered to ration power for up to five days, according to news reports Wednesday.

    That came after reservoir levels fell and power demand for air conditioning surged in scorching temperatures.
    “Leave power for the people,” said an order from the provincial government dated Tuesday.
    The shutdowns add to challenges for the ruling Communist Party as Xi, the country’s most powerful leader in decades, prepares to try to break with tradition and award himself a third five-year term as leader at a meeting in October or November.
    Growth in factory output and retail sales weakened in July, setting back China’s economic recovery after Shanghai and other industrial centres were shut down starting in late March to fight virus outbreaks.

    The economy grew by just 2.5 percent over a year earlier in the first half of 2022, less than half the official annual goal of 5.5 percent.
    Areas across central and northern China ordered emergency measures to ensure drinking water supplies after summer rain was as little as half normal levels. The official Xinhua News Agency said fire trucks had carried water to two dry villages near Chongqing in the southwest.
    Hundreds of thousands of hectares of crops across central and northern China have wilted due to lack of water and high temperatures, according to the government. Some areas have declared the summer growing season a failure.
    The weather agency has warned temperatures in some areas could spike to 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit).

    Many countries may have different weather conditions, in different areas.

    Especially when they are 2,300 km apart.

    No shit, fucking Sherlock. The points were made to show the visible impact of global warming, irrespective of where. You don't really need to have your knee-jerk defense of all things China all the time.


    Good points by HC:

Disappearances and gaol sentencences for those who dont conform to the CCP narrative seem to be glossed over in the world of the chinese trolls who infect this forum.
    These brainwashed CCP fifth columnists having been convinced 2+2=5, are having trouble convincing everyone else.

    That reminds me of the propaganda hot take about how there is no rule of law in Russia or China. Its just anarchy. No rule of law

    You simply have to be insane to have this view. Cujo lives in China and gets all the Americanized news he wants. Clearly evident in his politics threads.

    Nah, we like a bit of fiction.

    It's amusing to see how desperate you can be to try and white knight the chinkies, especially Mr. Shithole.

    How arrogant and grand he must be feeling right now.

    Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin’s Regular Press Conference on August 19, 2022

    "Shenzhen TV:

    According to reports, lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, along with two journalists, have recently sued the CIA for unlawfully obtaining information from their electronic devices and recordings of their conversations with Julian Assange, violating their privacy. Do you have any comment?


    Wang Wenbin:

    What has happened to Assange and his lawyers has again made one thing clear: in the US, the sanctity of human rights and press freedom comes with strings attached.

    The exercise of such rights and freedom must not come into conflict with the interests of the US. For if it does, they will surely come under high-handed restriction and ruthless suppression. 

    We can all imagine, had Assange disclosed the dirty secrets of not the US, perhaps he would not have been put behind bars and might even receive a medal or some kind of rewards and immense honor from the CIA."

    As the US attempts to sustain hegemony, China, Russia safeguard international order, justice




    How to evaluate the strength of a major power? To see its attitude toward its opponents. In his press briefing on Wednesday, US State Department Spokesman Ned Price referred to China-Russia relationship as a "burgeoning" one, which is "of concern" because the vision they have for the international order is "starkly at odds to the liberal vision" and "with the underpinnings of the international system that have been in place for some eight decades following the end of the Second World War."

    The US concerns toward China and Russia are also reflected in the latest massive coverage in the Western media about China sending troops to Russia to participate in the "Vostok" exercises, and the hype of the so-called threat from the two countries.

    A thief crying "stop thief." The US' concerns about the China-Russia relationship are the product of US' own strategic anxiety. Washington worries that the US-centered international order established after WWII would collapse, and the coordination between China and Russia in the security realm could offset US' influence in the international order the US has long dominated.

    US' strategic anxiety stems from the fact that the US is declining, said Zhang Tengjun, deputy director of the Department for Asia-Pacific Studies at the China Institute of International Studies. "The US maintains its strategic competition posture with China and Russia simultaneously in the directions of Ukraine and the Asia-Pacific. Under such circumstances, if China and Russia get closer, it will affect US' deployment of resources in the two directions and hinder its efforts to dominate regional order. But US' current strength does not allow it to focus on both," said Zhang.

    The mismatch of US' strength and its mentality of viewing itself as the world's No.1 is the root cause of the existing division and chaos of the world. Zhang held the view that the crux of the problem is not what China and Russia have done or not done, but whether the US and the West can overcome their fears and anxiety about their own decline.

    From the perspective of the international order, the US is the most prominent representative of hegemonism, while China and Russia are actually defending the international order, fairness and justice. Cui Heng, an assistant researcher at the Center for Russian Studies at East China Normal University, believes that the strategic cooperation between China and Russia injects positive momentum into the international community.

    "When the US-led NATO bombed Yugoslavia more than 20 years ago, no force could restrain the hegemony of the US. Can the US still do this today? Obviously not. At the regional level, the coordination between China and Russia is a constructive force. Taking Afghanistan as an example. The US left a mess, but in the end it is China, Russia and other neighboring countries that are helping clean up the mess," said Cui, adding that those who twist China-Russia relations reflect their wretched purposes, short-sightedness as well as failure to understand that the continuous strengthening of this bilateral relationship serves for world peace and stability.

    Henry Kissinger, former US secretary of state, said in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal that "we are at the edge of war with Russia and China on issues which we partly created, without any concept of how this is going to end or what it's supposed to lead to." Sadly, even though Kissinger's advice serves for US interests, the mainstream elites in the US who have slipped into the abyss of American political correctness won't heed such advice. If the US goes its own way to become enemies with China and Russia, it is isolating itself in the world.

    The rise of China- the biggest shift in our international environment since Europeans settled on this continent



    We cannot simply rely on the US to keep Asia “safe” in future. Is our Prime Minister really aware of this?

    In his recent Quarterly Essay: “Sleepwalk to War: Australia’s Unthinking Alliance with America”, Australian defence strategist, Hugh White argues the urgent need to rethink our view of the world and its future and especially how we deal with China and The United States.

    He says we need to stop underestimating China’s power and intentions, and to stop overestimating America’s capacity, because a correct assessment of their relative positions is essential to understanding what is happening in Asia and how we can best respond.

    The writer says we have been too eager to accept, in the face of clear evidence to the contrary, the idea that America’s position in Asia is invulnerable; that its armed forces are unbeatable, and that its commitment to Asia is unshakeable.

    White’s credentials are impressive. He is Emeritus Professor of Strategic Studies at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at the ANU and has published works on military strategy and international relations. He was Deputy Secretary for Strategy and Intelligence in the Australian Department of Defence from 1995 until 2000 and was the inaugural Director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

    He argues that Australia is a key player in the Asian region, but that Australian governments have failed to act effectively on the recognition that China is working towards becoming the leading power in the Asia-Pacific region, and in the world, and that it will almost certainly achieve that.

    In the essay, White says that we need to have a national conversation about how Australia should respond to what is the biggest shift in the international environment since Europeans settled on this continent. He argues that it is now time to start talking about the real choices we must make.

    India and China will unquestionably play a greater role in the new order and while we may continue to hope that America will play a substantial role in Asia’s new order, we cannot simply rely on that nation to keep Asia “safe” in future.

    I came away from reading this tightly argued booklet, satisfied that this is a debate that we must have in Australia and that our federal government must address it urgently. There are serious questions that are not being addressed about defence thinking, and the way we are slanting our approach to these two great powers.

    My “take-home” is that we have made a very bad decision about AUKUS and that we must not under any circumstances go to war with China over Taiwan. We need to engage in a thoughtful national debate about ways in which we can most effectively work in the new world order that is emerging.
