While this article mentions the total of 621, these are plants which are actually being constructed right now. There are a further almost 1000 plants in the planning stage, as the total for new coal fired power plants is around 1600, and rising.

Does this perhaps explain why that here in Australia, we’re running out of electricity, yet paying through the nose?

New coal-fired generators being built:

China: 299

India: 132

Indonesia: 32

World: 621

Australia: zero

Simon Benson:

The data was requested by ­Nationals senator and party whip John Williams, who has argued that the carbon emissions produced by the new plants worldwide would eclipse Australia’s total carbon emission profile.

“We don’t have a tent over Australia … emissions are going up around the world because of these generators being built,” ­Senator Williams told The Australian. “We are bowing down to the green agenda which will make no difference to the world’s ­emissions.

“It makes no sense. We will de-industrialise Australia and let everything be manufactured overseas with higher emissions.”
