RK Pachauri IPCC Chair Responds to Danda

4112014

November03, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.comI am glad at last Government of India has realized the IMPORTANCE of
Green Power, Clean Air and Environment Protection as Key Economic
Strategy and Multipurpose Dams, Solar and Renewable Power, Energy
Efficiency, Nuclear Power and Electric Transport results in Economic
Progress. Let me assure PM Shri Narendra Modi, India can have Cleanest
Air, Cheapest Power in the world for all.Coal Mining itself was MOST CORRUPT – Instead of mining Multi Seams in
Opencast Mines along with simultaneous Underground Mining like ADANI
mines contract in Australia – Indian mining was/is Unscientific and
MOST WASTEFUL.

Since 1991 India missed DANDA – absolute dullards fooled India in
everything from IPR, Multipurpose Dams, Industrial Policy, Trade
Policy, Housing, Water Power, Exploitation of Consumers, Economic
Policy, Public Companies, Agriculture & Food Processing etc and any
amount petitions made no difference. Bogus Inventor and Crook Sam
Pitroda misled INC for almost 30 years until Modi sidelined him.

For two decades India Stuck to Coal BASED Power policy even advocating
GHG emissions to go up from 0.6 Billion tones to 5 billion tones by
2030 but just TWO DANDAs of Modi government REVERSED it resulting out
of two ‘RK Gupta the Dullard- India Import 900 MT Coal & 700 MT
Petroleum-’ on September17 and ‘High Risk of Imported Experts – Dr.
Rajan Gupta, LANL —-’ of October25, 2014 resulted in reversal of
Polluting & Worst GHG emitting power generation.

RK Pachauri let Opposition over 40 years to Multipurpose DAM building
stalled Hydro Power development which has over 200,000 MW potential in
Indian rivers in Himalayas – in addition bend in Brahmputra Bend alone
has 200,000 MW Hydro Potential if jointly developed with China. India
has mainly built Lame Duck Dams that most unreliable and yield 40% of
hydro potential. For example – India could be producing 15-20 BU at
Nathpa Jhakri site than 6-8 BU annually.

Bhakra Dam produces 6 BU of power has 1325 MW of Generators whereas
Hoover Dam generates 4.2 BU has 2080 MW of generators. So Hoover Dam
has 2.25X Power to Generation ration. Thus most Existing Dams can have
twice more power capacity to provide Grid Stability – 300,000MW+ and
let Solar & Renewable integrate. With Nuclear Power capacity of
60-100,000 MW India can have totally GREEN ENERGY by 2050 fifty years
ahead of RK Pachauri proposal. India can potentially reduce GHG by 80%
to 90% effortlessly and in doing so produce power at half cost.
ROOFTOP SOLAR POWER FUNDED BY CONSUMERS PRESENTLY IS TOTALLY FREE IN
AVOIDING T&D AND T&D LOSSES.

Dr. Rajan Gupta foolishly wanted India to produce 6000 BU of power by
2050 – he didn’t consider Energy Efficiency in this which could reduce
energy demand by 50% thus India can have Power Generation almost
entirely from non Fossil Fuels. In fact 500 kilometer belt along
Himalayas can be free of Fossil Fuel for power generation. More
details are in Two Reports mentioned earlier.
