China’s Massive Coal-Fired Power Plant Boom Visualized
China Closes 10.71 Gigawatts of Small Coal-Fired Power Plants, Xinhua Says
China has closed 10.71 gigawatts of inefficient small coal-fired power plants as of July 15, two months ahead of schedule, the official Xinhua News Agency reported today, citing the National Energy Administration.
China has shut 70.77 gigawatts of small thermal power plants since 2006 under a plan aimed at boosting coal burning efficiency, the news agency said.

Coal-fired power plants capacity to grow by 35 per cent in next 10 years
World coal-fired power plant capacity will grow from 1,759,000 MW in 2010 to 2,384,000 MW in 2020. Some 80,000 MW will be replaced. So there will be 705,000 MW of new coal-fired boilers built. The annual new boiler sales will average 70,000 MW. The annual investment will be $140 billion.

Energy secretary Chris Huhne warned not to cut subsidies for green electricity
Reducing funding for household generation of renewable energy will jeopardise job creation and energy security, Huhne is told.
A coalition of green, countryside and housing groups has warned energy secretary Chris Huhne not to cut subsidies for green electricity and heating as part of the government's spending review. The 22 groups, including green energy trade body the Renewable Energy Association, the National Farmers Union and the Federation of Master Builders, said in a letter to Huhne that cutting schemes that subsidise household generation of renewable energy would jeopardise job creation, energy security and greenhouse gas targets.
The move was sparked by comments from the Department of Energy and Climate Change's minister of state, Charles Hendry, who recently said he was "closely reviewing" the £27bn renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme due to start in April next year to encourage the take-up of green heating devices such as heat pumps, and the £8bn feed-in tariff (FIT) launched in April which pays small-scale generators of green electricity.
"We inherited a situation where we could see who was going to benefit commercially but we couldn't really see how it was going to be paid for and that it would create pretty substantial bills," Hendry told the Telegraph in an article that suggested both schemes could be "slashed". /continues.
UK taxpayer and energy end user money will (continue to) subsidise so-called "green" energy that isn't beneficial to anything except the eco-fascist federalists and world gov agendas. Because subsidised "green" energy costs 3-4 times more than conventional, plus reserve energy costs, plus infrastructure costs, plus spy meter and meter maids' costs, plus carbon credit costs, businesses will not be able to compete with Chinese, Polish, Indian, US and other exporting countries with economic and reliable energy supplies (coal, gas, oil, nuclear, hydro) without taxpayer subsidies. The alternative is for them to relocate to a sane country or fold.
Why doesn't the UK decide to build 1000 refrigerant gas producing plants, then cancel them and claim credits? Scam the scammers as others are doing.

Here is what it costs to trade inside the club, they should be paying us to belong to the bankers' EU. We have a surplus in trade with the US. WRT the collapse of the EU/EC/euro, in the worst case it means we will lose the deficit trade balance by importing cheaper from the Commonwealth, China and India.
UK-EU trade deficit
The deficit with EU countries narrowed to £3.1 billion in June, compared with a deficit of £3.5 billion in May. Exports rose by £0.1 billion but imports fell by £0.3 billion.

The Commission wants a 7.6% increase in EU budget by 2013 26 August 2010
The Telegraph reports that the EU’s budget could rise by more than £8.8 billion to £125 billion in 2013 – a 7.6 percent rise on this year’s spending levels, if European Commission’s proposals are approved. The increase will mean that the British contribution to the EU rises to £10.3 billion over the next three years.
EU regulation has cost the UK £124 billion since 1998, 71% of the total cost 30 March 2010
Open Europe has today published the most comprehensive study to date on the cost of regulation to the UK economy. Based on over 2,300 of the Government's own impact assessments, Open Europe finds that regulation has cost the UK economy £176 billion since 1998 - roughly equivalent to the country's entire budget deficit. Of this amount, £124 billion, or 71%, had its origin in EU legislation.

Top 100 EU regulations to cost UK economy £184 billion by 2020 21 December 2009
Open Europe has today published a ‘Top 100 list’ of the most costly EU regulations introduced in the UK since 1998. Based on the UK Government’s own impact assessments, Open Europe estimates that the top 100 existing EU laws will cost the UK economy a staggering £184 billion between 2010 and 2020, even in the unlikely event that no new regulations are be passed during that time period.

Commissioner for Budget is working on an EU tax “like a scientist in a lab”, a spokesman says
EurActiv quotes Patrizio Fiorilli, a spokesman for EU Commissioner for Budget Janusz Lewandowski, commenting on media coverage of Lewandowski’s proposals to introduce an EU-wide tax to fund the EU budget directly. He describes recent reports as “a distortion of the truth”, adding that “we are not working on a direct EU tax”. However, Mr. Fiorilli goes on to say: “[Commissioner Lewandowski] is just a scientist in a lab examining four samples” – a carbon tax, an air travel tax, a tourism tax and a financial transactions tax. He also notes that a levy on financial transactions could end to be the preferred option, as it is uncomplicated to administer, politically acceptable and does not impose "any further fiscal burden on member states".

Swedish Parliament tries to get Commission to reconsider a proposal in first test of new provisions in the
Mandatory lending between member states under revised Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive violates of the subsidiarity principle
The Swedish Parliament, the Riksdag, has announced it will oppose the Commission’s proposed amendments to the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive. Under the amended Directive, deposit guarantee schemes must offer depositors up to €50,000, if their bank collapses. The schemes are to be 75 per cent pre-funded from bank contributions, with the remainder coming from additional contributions from other sources. However, the Treasury Committee of the Riksdag argued that the Commission wants to oblige member states to lend money to other member states which don’t manage to fund a deposit scheme on their own. The Riksdag, going against the government, said that this represents a violation of the EU’s subsidiarity principle. It will now seek to stop the proposal under a provision in the Lisbon Treaty which obliges the Commission to reconsider, but not scrap, the proposal if one third of national parliaments object to it, within a window of eight weeks.

A pretend crisis
The Daily Mail is reporting that Britain's £5billion rebate from Brussels is "under threat".
The EU's budget chief Janusz Lewandowski has warned that the justification for the annual payment has "clearly sunk" and is suggesting that it should be scrapped as it has "lost its original legitimacy".
Inevitably, the comments have provoked "an angry response" in Britain, where critics say that "the UK's £8.3billion a year net contribution to the EU is already far too high."
England Expects, however, smells a rat. He thinks this is a set-up, with the issue being raised only for the EU commission to back off when The Boy makes a ritual protest, enabling him to look good in the eyes of his beleaguered and increasingly cynical population.
The price – and of course there will be a price – will be early acquiescence to the various financial supervision directives, which the Tories will undoubtedly slide through with minimal discussion, knowing the complexity will dissuade the media from taking too close a look. /continues
Conclusion. A country run by zionist bankers and their agents is a broken country. Examples; the UK, The PIIGS, the US, Australia etc. Central banks have to go or be run by elected officials with a short term.
