Must-read roundup of analysis (& forecasts) of India’s electricity gap and mass blackouts via @theGWPF. You may disagree with Benny Peiser’s views on greenhouse gases & warming, but he’s a great aggregator.-More than half of India’s power-generation capacity of 205 gigawatts is coal-based, and Coal India Ltd., the world’s biggest coal producer, is unable to produce enough owing to delays in getting environmental clearances for mining. Meanwhile, government giveaways in the form of free electricity to farmers and a reluctance among politicians to raise power tariffs to sufficiently cover costs have drained cash reserves from the largely state-run electricity-distribution companies, leaving them with mounting debt and hampered ability to purchase power. —The Wall Street Journal, 30 July 2012
