China’s Conflicting Climate and Economic Goals Roil Commodities

Public Policy

China’s efforts to thread the needle between an often conflicting array of environmental, economic, social and geopolitical objectives are playing out in increasingly unpredictable global commodity markets.

The world’s biggest consumer of raw materials, and a major producer of some of them, is attempting to curb carbon emissions and conserve electricity, while at the same time preserving economic growth. It’s also trying to clean up its oil refining sector, improve mine safety and isn’t averse to using trade policy for geopolitical ends, as evidenced by its ban on Australian coal imports.

The problem is that many of these policies are cutting the supply of commodities and pushing up prices, making Beijing’s goal to rein in inflation a lot more difficult. The trade-offs are having differing impacts on markets: iron ore prices have plunged as steel production is curbed, coal has surged due to the mine safety push and the row with Australia, while energy-intensive aluminum has jumped to a 10-year high amid the power saving drive.

How Beijing juggles the various objectives and to what extent it chooses to sacrifice its climate or social goals for the economy will have a major influence on many commodities. These charts show how the policy contradictions are playing out in key markets.

At The Coalface

The commodity that best embodies the environmental and economic balancing act is coal, which provides more than half of China’s energy and most of its electricity. It’s also the dirtiest fossil fuel and the biggest contributor to the country’s emissions. Curbing coal use is the best way to meet commitments needed to limit the rise in global temperatures.

But Beijing isn’t doing that, or at least not fast enough. President Xi Jinping said he expects consumption to grow until 2026, and state-owned companies and provincial governments are still approving new coal-fired power plants. At the same time, China’s leaders have been clear that the fuel needs to be all but eradicated by 2060, and there are signs — including the halting of a $19 billion coal-to-chemicals plant in July – that they are serious.

 

A surge in domestic coal prices to a record high this year isn’t exactly incentivizing miners to produce less, however. The economic recovery from the pandemic, the ban on Australian imports and a domestic mine safety push have all contributed to the rally. Coal power plants in the Beijing area are losing money and have asked the municipal government to tear up supply contracts and pay more for electricity this winter to ensure stable supply.

Steely Ban

China seems more determined, at least in the short term, to cut emissions from its highly pollutive steel industry. Beijing wants to cap this year’s output below that in 2020, but production actually surged to an all-time high in the first half. That portends an 11% year-on-year drop in the final six months. And in a sign the government is serious about this, key steelmaking provinces such as Guangxi and Sichuan are stepping up efforts to curb activity.

The pressure on the steel industry has flowed through to the market for its key ingredient. The fact that iron ore has plunged around 50% since mid-July shows that investors expect the government to follow through on its target. Although they could be in for a rude shock if economic growth is prioritized instead. Given that steel prices have largely held up, Beijing’s policies have provided an unexpected boon to global producers such as Nippon Steel Corp.

Aluminum Antics

China’s aluminum conundrum was on clear display in the past week, as output curbs in a key hub sent China’s futures prices spiking to their highest since before the global financial crisis. Producing aluminum uses huge quantities of mostly coal-fired electricity, so the industry is a key target in campaigns to cut emissions and boost energy efficiency.

 

 

Guangxi province ordered a range of sectors including aluminum to reduce output for the rest of this year in a bid to save power and reduce emissions. But the subsequent price spike triggered a warning from the nation’s top metals association that prices were untethered from fundamentals. That pits the industry group against analysts from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and trading giant Trafigura Group, who expect China’s decarbonization efforts to limit China’s aluminum output and push the metal to fresh highs.

More Efficient

 

For years, China’s key metric when it comes to climate change hasn’t been the amount of coal it burns, renewable energy it generates or even carbon it emits. Instead, the country has focused on efficiency, or how much energy it needs to consume to create a unit of GDP. The reasoning was that China’s industrial revolution had gotten a late start, with a big jump in emissions only beginning in the 2000s. Beijing didn’t want to limit the amount of fossil fuels it could burn, but it was intent on making sure it was becoming more efficient, cutting the amount of energy it takes for each unit of GDP by 72% from 1990.

Now that Xi has targeted peak emissions before 2030 and net-zero by 2060, efficiency is still a priority. The government’s top-line environmental goals for its current five-year plan are to reduce energy consumption per unit of GDP by 13.5% by 2025, and carbon intensity by 18% over the same period. Vice Premier Han Zheng last week ordered a curb on new projects that fail to meet standards on total energy consumption and energy intensity.

    hello, you’re absolutely right which proves beyond any doubt how utterly stupid the white man is because only a total fucking idiot would go to the enormous effort of transporting 12.5 million useless Africans to the new world as slaves for centuries.

    I fully agree. But you know the worst part? Europeans didn’t learn. They STILL, right now, importing uncounted numbers of sludge into their home land. I mean, how stupid is that? Everybody knows how useless they are, yet they keep importing them. All you need is a few to showcase in the city zoo, but that’s about it.
    There’s 0 benefit of having sludge wander in your beautiful cities, hanging around train stations and generally be a visual nuisance. Really, creatures looking like monkeys don’t enhance the picture perfect old european towns, don’t you agree?

    I know, Clog blames the jews. I blame amazing stupidity of europeans.

    The black immigrants who don’t work, never had any intention of working because they were criminals before they came are niggers. The others are like most immigrants throughout history – just trying to survive.

    In the not to distant future most of the societal experiments will be ending as we close ranks & return to our primitive tribal roots…..to survive.

    There’s no need to explain or argue for it either. Most of the progressive types will go silent about immigration & stick to abortion & other ‘girl power’ issues & create some kind of neo Affirmative Action for white actresses, where 25% of all superheroes must be white females “Go Girl Power” and all that.

    – Carl Bernstein’s – “these jewish neocons who brought us the war in Iraq & Afghanistan… perhaps I can say that as a jew”
    – Italian ex-president Cossiga who said 3 months before his death that 9/11 was a Mossad/CIA inside job in an interview to the largest Italian daily

    [*] – Larry had ordered to blow up pre-wired wtc7 in order to avoid that investigators would discover a building, wired for demolition, embarrassed as he was by the fact that the plane that headed for wtc7 was shot down over Pennsylvania by a proactive local commander, who was not in the plot.

    9/11 – the perfect proof of the immense power of the media to brainwash the herd of obese and tatooed boobs into thinking what (((The Masters of the Universe))) want them to think: about WW2, holohoax, JFK, diversity, racism, natzis, white privilege, Saddam, Assad, Putin, BLM, statues, etc., etc.

    But somehow, this entire media operation is running out of steam. The Masters of the Universe, inadvertently, have destroyed the US with mass third world immigration, before The Great Satan managed to complete the NWO “global integration scheme”. Now they are on the run, from Syria, from Iraq, from Afghanistan.

    Tough luck, Uncle Schmull! Go back to start, you will not receive a New American Century.

    I don’t consider myself to sit in the same “our” as you, “buddy”.

    You really must be out of touch with reality if you think that “African sweat shops”, run by gooks or otherwise, are going to define the 21st century.

    As I will not tire to repeat over and over again, as good effective propaganda consists of repetition, that we are heading for a multi-polar world. Sammy Huntington is going to burry Charlie Marx. The gooks are going to be #2, good for them, well-deserved, the glorious white race of Ice People, occupying all lands around the North Pole, will remain in planetary pole position. Amurrica is going to be “refactored”, in order for the balkanized remainders to become the junior partner of the Mother Civilization Paris-Berlin-Moscow (EU+Slavs). NYC is going to be closed down as the diplomatic capital of the world and replaced by Astana, Kazakhstan (your Borat Sasha Cohen pall is going to love it!), in the middle of Eurasia, equidistant from Europe, China, Japan, India, Muzzies.

    George Soros will end up in Madame Tussaud, next to Dolfie, Joe and Winnie. You yourself can look forward to a career, picking apples in a Kibbutz in Upstate New York. Hitler will enjoy a modest revival. He may have lost WW2, but he was right about the jews. And in the end, Germany will have won WW2 anyway. In extra time.

    In 1909, German chemist Fritz Haber developed a process by which atmospheric nitrogen (N2) could be converted into ammonia (NH3), a form of nitrogen that plants can use. A few years later, engineer Carl Bosch took Haber’s laboratory process to industrial scale, and by 1913 the chemical company BASF had a plant up and running. Since then the “Haber-Bosch process” has been the primary industrial method for producing synthetic nitrogen fertilizer, which has “solved” the problem of dwindling soil fertility and the depletion of organic sources of fertilizers.

    That “solution,” which uses natural gas as a feedstock with a lot of heat (today about 1% of industrial energy goes to this process), has doubled food production. This suggests, as statistical analyses have borne out, that about half the current population would not be here without Haber-Bosch.

    The English newspaper DailyMail absurdly wants to frame this as “Frexit”, which would mean a distancing of France from the EU. In reality, this is to be seen as a Frexit from the woke libtard US empire. What Barnier wants to do is kill the human rights tralala, imposed on us by the US, and halt all influx from the Third World.

    The real Frexit is not from the EU, but from the West, enabled by Brexit. Barnier is a Gaullist, and hence wants to swap the US for Russia. Russia and gold mine New Silk Road are so much more interesting than the woke Orwellian Five Eyes Oceania.

    “US, UK, Australia announce ‘historic’ military partnership in move likely to anger China”

    More US-Chinese horn-locking.

    These subs will probably not be delivered before Chinese paratroopers will land in Australia, in the wake of an escalating conflict over Taiwan, that could start shortly after the end of the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics.

    From a European-geopolitical perspective, the ultimate dream is coming true: Anglosphere and China are locking horns over a relatively insignificant island of Taiwan, with merely 23 million inhabitants, which nobody denies is historically, ethnically and culturally Chinese, and nobody has diplomatically recognized for exactly that reason.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9996453/Britain-build-Australias-fleet-NUCLEAR-submarines-new-security-pact.html

    “Taiwan and Japan’s joy at AUKUS submarine pact to take on China: Relief among the West’s Pacific allies while furious Beijing warns it ‘undermines peace’, France fumes over ‘stab in the back’ and anti-nuke New Zealand BANS Aussie subs”

    Australia is making exactly the mistake, their (deceased) most senior p0olitician Malcolm Fraser has warned against, namely following the US in adventurism against the coming geopolitical #1, China:

    https://parisberlinmoscow.wordpress.com/2015/01/02/america-australias-dangerous-ally/

    The fate of Australia is as good as sealed. Australia will become Chinese property, perhaps even as early as this decade.

    Despite the fact that the US was serially humiliated in Iraq (by the Islamic State), Syria (by Russia) and Afghanistan (by the Taliban), the Anglos love to imagine they are now ready for geopolitical prime time and take on an IQ100 nation of 1400 million, that is on a steep rising trajectory.

    #BeerAndPopcorn

    What the Anglos should do, is accepting that keeping the South China Sea out of the hands of the Chinese is a dangerous and futile exercise and that they should grant China a mini-version of the Monroe-doctrine.

    By snubbing France to the tune of $90 billion, they further undermined NATO and the West and have driven France even further into the arms of the EU (as if that were even necessary) and even Russia.

    The truth is that the Australia subs deal has SET BACK Australian acquisition of subs with 6 years:

    “Nuclear subs may not be ready for 15 years”

    First deliveries to be expected not before 2036. The French has promised to deliver by 2030.

    Australia Continues Its Plunge Into Authoritarianism And Military Brinkmanship

    If you don’t understand why Australia would undermine its own economic and security interests to pour a fortune into America’s cold war with China, watch this. Australia isn’t allied with the US to protect itself from China, it’s allied with the US to protect itself from the US.

    “This deal will replace a planned $90 billion program to obtain twelve submarines designed by France, an obnoxious expenditure either way when a quarter of Australians are struggling to make ends meet during a pandemic that is four times more likely to kill Australians who are struggling financially. This is just the latest in Canberra’s continually expanding policy of feeding vast fortunes into Washington’s standoff with Beijing at the expense of its own people.

    If readers are curious why Australia would simultaneously subvert its own economic interests by turning against its primary trading partner and its own security interests by feeding into dangerous and unnecessary provocations, I will refer them once again to the jarringly honest explanation by American political analyst John Mearsheimer at a debate hosted by the Australian think tank Center for Independent Studies in 2019. Mearsheimer told his audience that the US is going to do everything it can to halt China’s rise and prevent it from becoming the regional hegemon in the East, and that Australia should align with the US in that battle or else it would face the wrath of Washington.”

    “Nothing suggested an event of this magnitude,” confirmed Marc Pontaud, an expert from Météo-France. “244 mm in three hours at Saint-Dionisy is exceptional,” he insisted, recalling that the absolute record in the Gard was 216.4 mm at Saint-Martial on 19 September 2020.

    Exactly the scenario Malcolm Fraser feared for his Australia, namely that Australia will end up as an ally of a defeated America and will disappear in the hungry belly of the Red Dragon:

    “America: Australia’s Dangerous Ally”

    Mao always called Australia “that lonely continent”, clearly indicating that he saw it as a potential tasty prey.

    America will run, as always, leaving its “allies” behind, like it did in Vietnam and Afghanistan, leaving Australia undefended against China, so Australia can wave from these silly subs towards the sky, where endless masses of planes will drop Chinese paratroopers onto Down Under and its submarine bases and tiny 40k army and shoot a few thousand Australians for every Chinese ship sunk, provided these subs will be delivered in time (2036) in the furst place. US official projections about Chinese power, that predicts that a real challenge from China is decades away, will probably be just as accurate as that from the Clouseaus from the CIA, who insisted that a Taliban take-over wouldn’t happen within 3 months, where in reality it happened in three hours.

    For Europe, things couldn’t be better: its only two serious competitiors Anglostan and China are locking horns, thereby neutralizing each other; with a little luck they wipe each other out, while the EU and Russia do the beer-and-popcorn stuff.

    Where the Brexit boobs in the readers comments are dreaming about new British imperial glory, together with their beloved USofA, saner heads at the DailyMail have second thoughts:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9999881/Fears-UKs-deal-Australia-drag-Britain-new-Cold-War-China-invades-Taiwan.html

    “Fears UK’s nuclear sub deal with US and Australia could drag Britain into war if China invades Taiwan – as Boris Johnson ‘rules nothing out’ and security advisor says military pact is ‘indissoluble bond’ on which ‘new collaboration can be built'”

    Great thinking, Watson!

    Where Britain squandered its empire in 1939, allegedly to come to the aid of the Poles (after the war they handed Poland over to the loving care of Stalin regardless) [*], now they are going to destroy the last thing they have, their mid-sized country, by distancing themselves from the white world with Brexit and potentially fighting a useless war over the Chinese province of Taiwan.

    Mark my words: Anglosphere is being setup for destruction, its time has come. Down Under will disappear in the belly of the Red Dragon, Britain will disintegrate in 4 or more parts in the wake of Brexit, America will fall apart over race in much more than 4 parts and Canada, that doesn’t participate in “AUSUK”, has already decided to submit itself to China without a fight:

    “Canada to target over 400,000 immigrants per year”

    Anglos have fully internalized the dream of the jews, namely to create a world without borders, owned by jewish oligarchs and Anglos being 2nd in the moral pecking order. For that grandiose purpose, they are willing to fraternize with Africans, Hispanics, Eskimos and what not, and finally wipe themselves out, demographically. And it is all going to fail, as there are not enough Anglos left to get the job done and the imported darkies are preparing to take over and demonize and wipe out Anglo white culture and history and replace it with jungle rap, and with all the Anglo statues dismantled.

    [*] Britain never fought for Poland, but were set up for war by the Americans or rather its jewish overclass, who smelled that with 29% global GDP they were strong enough to set up a global empire and loved to exploit the Versailles situation to their own advantage: just sick these Europeans into war and rake in the rubble afterwards, together with their Soviet palls, with whom the Americans were in bed since 1933, when the jews took over US government, after their brethren had done the same in Russia after 1917-1922.

    Our (European) future allies in Canada:

    https://www.eurocanadian.ca/2021/09/mad-maxs-revolt-against-political-correctness-gains-steam.html

    This is how it began in East-Germany too, with Pegida and out of the blue, the AfD achieved 12% in parliament after the 2015 immigration disaster. They will not take over power, thank God, but they do act as a warning sign against the continental European elites not to push immigration any further or lose control and said elite understood, reacted and has build fences all around Europe.

    2015 won’t be repeated.

    Old-school nationalism, that brought us WW1 and WW2 and ZOG-USSR spearheaded globalism, should die and be replaced by white nationalism or Europeanism-with-global-reach.

    The immanent dismemberment of the UK could very well set in motion a similar development in continental Europe and North-America, as per Dutch beer tycoon Freddy Heineken:

    “The United Statelets of Europe”

    Nation states: go f*cker!

    Let future North-Americans of the conservative variety pay in euro!
