    Australia's Massive Coalfield

    Australia's Massive Coalfield

    Climate change was supposed to have won the Labor Party the Australian election. But after having been routed by voters, its panicked leaders backed the mining of a coalfield bigger than the UK.

    Fearing a wipe out in state elections next year amid a rise in pro-coal workers, and a rebellion against its plans to halve Australian’s carbon emissions, the Labor state government in Queensland accelerated its decision on 105,000 square miles of coal-rich outback known as the Galilee Basin. 1

    .

    The international climate movement argues that if the Galilee Basin’s estimated 27 billion tons of coal was extracted, exported and burned, the extra carbon dioxide released each year would be far more than Australia’s total emissions, and would set back the world’s chances of keeping the increase in global warming under 2C. 2

    Really? The international climate movement should check some statistics. It’s impossible that Australia doing anything regarding CO2 could possibly affect the world’s temperature 0.0 C over 100 years. Australia currently emits 1.6% of the global CO2.

    Others have also bemoaned this action. “Australians elected someone who once brought a lump of coal into Parliament urging us to dismiss the warning of climate scientists, and to dig up more coal instead,” Professor Stephan Lewandowsky said. “There is little doubt that his government will do precisely that.”


    “We have lost Australia for now,” warned Penn State climatologist Michael Mann. “A coalition of a small number of bad actors now threaten the survivability of our species,” he said. Once again, a massive overstatement.

    These alarmist are ignoring the fact that Australia’s annual man-made emissions are about half a day’s worth of China’s

    I thought they were temperature tantrums. At one time I used to drink the rum from the tant. Those days are long past.

    Queensland is a big place...more than double Texas over there. Lots of coal. Queensland is also the centre of the minor conservative parties...that swung the election. 52% of all votes were made for these minor parties...and...their #2 voting preferences went to The Coalition. This win has served notice that Queensland's coal is a front burner issue. (Pun intended.)

    As far as these pollution figures go...Australia has seen the unfairness is assigning this per capita emissions to our 25M population. If these figures are also exported to those that actually burn it...along with our coal (and, everything else)...we are the cleanest and greenest nation.
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    That's a New South wales (NSW) company. Not a good share market performer. NSW is too over-regulated. QLD is booming like nobody's business. Like I said...over twice the size of Texas...just nudged over 5M for the whole state...half in coastal resort cities, half making a good living off the land and in the resource industry. it's a young couple's paradise to get a good living out in front of you...
