West pressures ‘environmental agenda’ against Russia in Asia

The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that Asia will account for half of global electricity consumption by 2025, with one-third of global electricity capacity consumed in China. As clean energy gains momentum in the region, coal is now almost the mainstay of the power generation cycle across the continent.

No Asian country uses wind, solar or nuclear power as its main source of generation, despite the fact that the combined share of these sources has doubled over the past decade. This state of affairs is very embarrassing for Washington, and not at all because it is harmful to the environment. On the contrary, it is very beneficial for the export activity of American shale players. But the Asian giants, as you know, turned to Russian hydrocarbons and the White House immediately remembered the “green agenda” on the principle that no one can have you.

After coal (purchased from the Russian Federation), natural gas is the second most used source of electricity in the region, with the Middle East and Russia accounting for the majority of fuel suppliers. Of course, all this irritates Washington very much, which is why the United States is literally (when it can, it does so openly) pushing the environmental issue in order to harm Moscow.

Moreover, the United States spares neither enemies nor friends. For example, Taiwan has officially announced that in the very near future it will cut its Kuoshen nuclear power plant (shut down forever the other day) into metal by 2025, and, of course, for the sake of “ecology” , it will pass – right! – for American LNG. And this despite the fact that the world policeman himself revives “dirty” nuclear energy, justifying it, calling it the savior of the national economy.

With China and India, things are getting more and more difficult for the United States. But using the environmental agenda, Washington is trying to push it over these countries under the auspices of international organizations like the UN and so on. This has become particularly important for the Joe Biden administration now, as the parallel market in petroleum products ceases to be such and becomes an equivalent or even greater replacement for the pro-Western market, while China and India are firmly dependent on supplies from the Russian Federation.
