Seems that when the globe warms in the South it gets bluddy cold in the North.

Saving their jobs is what Decides their thinking.
 so in a southern hemisphere summer the northern hemisphere has winter and gets colder. Wow - i noticed that as well

Which world is that?

Not the Third World, not China or India, not the USA ... just the mugs like us!Wacko


Yes, I alluded to the Same thing a few posts back but we're not surprised there's been no comment about it

Things are changing very quickly maxie, the maeket is driving the bus now, not 'owned' politicians.


In latest move, China halts over 100 coal power projects

China's energy regulator has ordered 11 provinces to stop more than 100 coal-fired power projects, with a combined installed capacity of more than 100 gigawatts, its latest dramatic step to curb the use of fossil fuels in the world's top energy market.

The huge plummet in prices of solar energy in India has helped leaders to walk away from its plans of building nearly 14 gigawatts of coal-fired power stations. Analyst Tim Buckley said this shift will have “profound” ramifications for global energy markets.

In his article on the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis’s website, he said that 13.7GW of planned coal power projects have been cancelled so far this month and this goes to show the rate of change regarding solar energy.

Both China and India have reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris Agreement and both are ahead of their agreed targets. India has announced it will have 40% of its energy from non fossil fuel sources by 2022. Thats 8 years early . China's carbon emissions have peaked and are on their way down. Again earlier than predicted.

So forget the Global Warming argument putting all your eggs in the coal basket is just plain bad business.

China’s emissions are expected to grow nearly 32 percent through 2040, according to projections from the Energy Information Administration. The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate projected Chinese emissions increasing 34 percent over 2012 levels by 2030.

Most of this increase will come from coal-fired electricity. China pledged to use more natural gas, renewables and nuclear power, but coal is expected to provide the lion’s share of electricity in the country for decades to come.

Reports suggest China has scrapped plans for one hundred new coal-fired power plants, but that’s largely because its economic growth is slowing down and their population is aging. Older populations tend to have fewer industrial jobs.

Yet, China’s new five-year plan would “raise coal-fired power capacity from around 900 gigawatts last year to as high as 1,100 gigawatts by 2020,” which is “more than the total power capacity of Canada,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Just curious if anyone saw the interview on fox with Terry MCrann, he did say the Finkle report will cost 900 billion equall to 900 hospitals according to PETA Credlin who was also on the show, MCrann stated Finkle maybe a scientist but I am an Economist and with China continuing to use delapidated coal fired stations spewing out fine particles of coal dust and India also what hope have we got to make an improvement, he also stated that if our coal fired stations were upgraded there would only be CO2 emissions and scientists should working on how to contain them, there was also mention of $60 return on meg for solar and gov subsidy of $80 , any one understand those pavements?

    Russian yacht 'HIJACKED' by North Korea risking WAR between countries

    A RUSSIAN boat was reportedly "hijacked" by North Korea in a move that could spark war between the countries.

    By Rachel O'Donoghue / 

    The Russian Foreign Ministry is investigating reports the vessel was seized while sailing in the Sea of Japan.

    A VHF radio message from the yacht with three crew on board apparently declared an emergency.

    It said the vessel "was hijacked, or arrested, by a North Korean ship", said Russian maritime expert Mikhail Voytenko.

    But since the message was sent out on Wednesday, no further communication has come from the boat. more.....

    Newt Gingrich, prominent member of the Trump team on twitter

    May 18

    Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down

    June 15

    The brazen redefinition of Mueller's task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything

    What changed his attitude?

    Could it be strong rumours of a leak from intelligence people that Newt was caught on tape in Sept 2016 coordinating meetings between Trump people and Russian officials with a promise being thrown about that sanctions will be lifted in the first week of a Trump administration?
