Nobody wants the plant in their neighborhood. Nobody wants mining in their neighborhood. Yet somehow new coal-fired power stations are built and brought to completion; this is not explored in this article. But it does appear that nuclear power plants will remain rare in what will soon be the world's most populous country.
Of course it is. It's doing things the hard way, almost designed to keep fossil fuels as the default until they run out. So much easier and cheaper to replace 2/3 or more of FF with the same carbon-free electric power that's supposed to power the carbon reduction systems, but use it directly (through batteries) at several times the efficiency.
Possibly so-called Artificial Trees will be adopted.
If you replace 2/3 of fossil fuels with electricity, you have reduced your carbon requirements far enough that biomass can supply them all. That gets rid of the need to capture CO2, because it's not only captured but mostly reduced for you already. That slashes the energy requirements dramatically.
