Australian Coal and the Planet

Posted by feww on January 10, 2009

Australia is about to experience some of the hottest temperatures anywhere on the planet!

Quote of the Day:

“Switzerland finances construction of coal plants, Sweden builds them, and Australia exports coal and sets atmospheric carbon dioxide goals so large as to guarantee destruction of much of the life on the planet.” ~ James Hansen, NASA Climatologist.

The above quote is from a letter to Michelle and Barack Obama written by Hanson on December 29, 2008.

Now the $64 trillion question

Why isn’t Hansen advocating a smart option like a low-energy path for the economy?
