About: Former UN Climate Chief says Australia needs to ditch coal

Global warming bullshit must rate as the biggest con we've seen in our generation. We need more coal powered power stations now.
UN should mind it's own business.  They want more nuclear power plants built so they can use Australian land to dump garbage that doesn't break down for thousands of years and destroys lives.  There is a method of cleaning coal but big business will not do it because of profit margins.  Also a Prime Minister said no to wind power because it was ugly.
If it's so good for the economy then we don't need to see your annoying face every two seconds.
"The prime minister says... The prime minister says..." Who cares you ignorant fool, think for yourself for once in your life instead of parroting your greedy politicians. People are so dumb.
Think and read …
The UN stated, "A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change."

"A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use."
Chicken Little Syndrome
Fear mongering — whether justified or not — can sometimes elicit a societal response called Chicken Little syndrome, described as "inferring catastrophic conclusions”.
Over reactive Leaders take every piece of information, every strand of data, and take action based on that information. They see an opportunity to seize control or manipulate the situation to their advantage whether it be for Status, Power or Personal Monetary gain.
Good Leaders know that they need to take action, but they guard against overreaction.
To be honest everyone. . I highly recommended you to really lissen to what Christiana Figueres is saying.. she is spot on the topic in every way I highly Respect that woman.. and if you're interested please hear Leonardo DiCaprio speech at the United Nations it's to be found on YouTube everyone.. 💕🍃🌍🍃💕✌💕
Well the US has cancelled our membership in the Paris Hoax Accord (PHA). We're firing up the coal plants to save the planet. Yes I said save the planet, because Co2 is plant food, not pollution. If you lower the Co2 levels to 200 PPM, 97% of the trees and plants will die. Co2 has a specific gravity of 1.5 and air has a sg of 1.0. This means Co2 is heavier than air and cannot float up and create a heat trapping canopy. God made Co2 to be heavier than air so it would hover at ground level and feed the plants. Co2 also doesn't mix well with air, and we have warnings in the US for people going into storm drains and caves for the risk of suffocation from Co2 displacing the air. Even if Co2 could float up and create a canopy, it has never been proven to have heat trapping capabilities. These so called experts, know nothing about science or the carbon cycle. If you look at NASA's research you'll see that tens of thousands of years ago, the earth thrived at Co2 levels of 3,000 PPM and higher. Right now the earth is extremely low at 400 PPM. These morons promoting this stupid theory don't know that the sun controls our temperatures on earth. In 2011 we witnessed some of the largest solar flares ever seen on the sun, and the very next day we had record high temperatures across the US.
This has been a WW2 lvl threat for 50y now, do people really not understand why...?
If the temp increase to the point that the permafrost's melt, there will be so much methane released that oceans can start to boil at the equator turning the planet into Venus...
We need to dramatically change how to think about our energy future. The benefits of fossil fuels in terms of human flourishing need to be weighed carefully against the environmental impacts of fossil fuels.

Fossil fuels are directly responsible for our present high standard of living. Where there is access to cheap reliable plentiful energy from fossil fuels we see life expectancy increasing by more than 40%, an eradication of starvation and malnutrition, and people are no longer living in the grinding poverty present in most of human history. Therefore it is anti-human and immoral to restrict access to fossil fuels by means of carbon taxes or other punitive carbon policies.

A summary of the best available climate science is as follows: The historical and geological record suggests recent changes in the climate over the past century are within the bounds of natural variability. Human influences on the climate (largely the accumulation of CO2 from fossil fuel combustion) are a physically small (1%) effect on a complex, chaotic, multicomponent and multiscale system. Unfortunately, the data and our understanding are insufficient to usefully quantify the climate’s response to human influences. However, even as human influences have quadrupled since 1950, severe weather phenomena and sea level rise show no significant trends attributable to them. Projections of future climate and weather events rely on models demonstrably unfit for the purpose. As a result, rising levels of CO2 do not obviously pose an immediate, let alone imminent, threat to the earth’s climate.

Fossil fuels drive economic growth and jobs. Fossil fuels provide more than 80% of the world's energy demand and will continue to do so into 2050. Renewable energy can only provide a small percentage of world energy. Proposals under the Paris Agreement to drastically reduce fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions would devastate Canada's and Australia's economy. Reducing GHG emissions to 80% less than 1990 levels by 2050 implies that living standards would be reduced to that of the 1800's.
Man made climate chance is a hoax. Its about political power and control, sheeple.
You cant compromise with climate change !
Other countries in the world need to mind there own businesses every country should burn coal wood there garbage or throw it in the oceans there is no fixing the planets oceans or lands we have screwed it up
So go ahead and dump your stuff where ever you want
The oceans can’t be repaired what we take from the oceans is poison from us the land is the same
The 6 families that run the world don’t care
Any time any one UN says something, I would follow the dollar and the favors.
You All don't give a flying flip about anything but your fame and power.
This lady is so full of it, the same jokers having her puppet butt out here talking about eminent destruction are the very ones capable of causing the destruction, so what is it that's really going on there Codex? Whose mission in agenda without the people consent,... passed this off as news?
She is so full of herself give me a break
I wonder how much of her funding comes from foreign/ domestic oil or gas companies solar or wind. I hope they now that clean burning coal plants have come leaps and bounds. If I owned a gas company she would be getting a fat check from me. I wonder who is paying her would be interesting to find out. Coal has no place eh, it's cheap and abundant, let's replace it with brand new billion dollar plants and all new infrastructure, to replace it with something that makes you dependant on other countries and foreign companies. Makes sence to me. Derp derp derp
What is the alternative if they stop using coal? Buy oil and be dependant on other country. Just use your own natural resources. There is always an agenda behind these propaganda about climate change. The reason there is a massive climate change is because some countries are messing with weather using technology. Its not a hidden secret anymore.
Australians don't need electricity.

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
