In a Post Peak Oil world, one in which climate disasters will get worse, and all the low hanging fruit of easy resource extraction/refinement are gone, the rate limiting factor of global growth and productivity is no longer human labor, manpower, brains, talent etc.... We are reaching or have passed peak resource .... Its more and more people fighting for ever shrinking zerosum pie... fusion is still 4 decades away if ever, we are running out of time to utilize a new energy source. We have never left the oil age, everything even renewables still depend on oil infrastructure.
In this grand scheme of things, having a friendly and propserous India is NOT good for China nor the world... Look at India population, its demographics, its juxaposition to China border. Its in China's benefit to keep perpetual controlled conflict so India is always poor.. and if it has to seem like its losing a propaganda infowar to India in the short term to achieve a long term objective then so be it. In short its a good thing India joined Quad and not RCEP
Those bickering about this finger or that finger are not touching the whole elephant
The numbers show that there is more than enough solar and wind power available for all energy needs.
No need for such doom and gloom
