Fortescue Metals Group, has announced it will be carbon neutral this decade – switching steel production to green hydrogen.
One of the largest carbon emitters in Australia, Stanwell Corporation, has announced it is ceasing use of coal.
BHP have set a target to become carbon neutral (hopefully closing glencore coal mines soon)
Macquarie announces plan to exit coal by 2024.
Huge kudos. That’s been done for all the right reasons and without government incentives.
28 May 2021 – A stunningly beautiful place on the planet, Indonesia’s state utility has committed to phasing out coal.
Balance with nature takes practice.
(Australian bureaucrats recently corruptly approved a large coal mine in oz owned by India (the coal mine approval is being fought in court by locals) Modi is currently at around seventy percent electricity production from coal and increasing – at huge cost to people and the planet)
[3 May 2021 – reportedly Modi has not put in place an equal and comprehensive free vaccination program for coronavirus in India. It matters]
Stunningly corrupt Modi (good buddies with which freemason bureaucrats) is the third largest carbon emitter on the planet and yet to pledge reduction.
[29 April 2021] Japanese bureaucrats (the fourth largest carbon emitter on the planet) have recently approved new inner city coal power plants (being contested by locals) and last month approved a plan to dump around 1.3million tonnes of radioactive contaminated wastewater into the ocean – the plan announced last month is endorsed by some freemason bureaucrats and has caused outcry amongst both local and international fishing fleets, officials from several countries including South Korea, China and environmentalists.
Love the people and the country without liking the inept bureaucrats, oz has some corrupt bureaucrats at the moment too. We are not convinced rigged elections fall under the definition of democracy.
In April 2020 coal-lobby sports-rort Australian bureaucrats cancelled agreed Belt and Road projects in an attempt to antagonise and create tension – decades of strong bureaucratic relations and trade destroyed in under two years by inept sports-rort bureaucrats at huge cost to Australian businesses and the economy.
Genuinely one of Australia’s greatest politicians – some politicians make people feel proud to be Australian. Used to door knock and hand out leaflets during elections back then for a reason.
All new coal power plant approvals that were rushed through last year by the current Australian federal government have now been cancelled.
Internationally it is a very very short and thankfully being reduced list of bureaucrats that continue to try to approve new coal power plants or coal mines.
(7 July 2021)
Analysis by satellites shows that coal mines in a region emit almost two million tonnes of methane into the atmosphere each year (emissions equivalent to tens of millions of vehicles, or put another way, one large coal mine emits more methane than all the cattle in all of Australia)
Despite this, and the highest budget deficit in history due to mismanagement, the sports-rort federal Australian bureaucrats this week agreed to provide $175million in tax payer funds to a coal mine (Australian banks refuse to finance coal mines for a reason)
Reportedly “coal supplied around 7% more of US electricity production during the first half of this year compared to the same period of 2020” hopefully freemason Kerry etc (so far this year has banned the import of solar panels and federal govt approvals to “drill for oil and gas on US public lands are on pace this year to reach their highest level since George W”) is just working through some glitches in their bureaucratic climate action plan.
The UK is leading the way and will be coal free by 2024. China are making huge efforts in installing renewables.
