Renewables 2014 Global Status Report Highlights Another Year of Impressive Renewable Energy Growth

Green (Living) Review

Growing numbers of cities, states, and regions seek to transition to 100 percent renewable energy in either individual sectors or economy-wide. For example, Djibouti, Scotland, and the small-island state of Tuvalu all aim to derive 100 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

The only major change adumbrated by the Gillard Labor Government is a coal to gas transition for electric power generation, this ignoring the reality that this will mean a doubling of greenhouse gas generation from the electricity sector because methane (CH4) is 85% of natural gas, leaks at about 3.3% “Australia is committed to a greedy and inhumane course of climate exceptionalism, climate racism and climate injustice.&#.

Island Nations can fight Climate Genocide with Carbon Debt & Carbon Credit Analysis

Further, one can value this Historical Carbon debt by applying a Carbon Price and here we will use $100 per tonne CO2, roughly the price that could achieve a transition from dirty coal and gas burning to clean, renewable wind energy. At the 2011 Durban Climate Conference the US, with the help of its climate criminal lackeys Australia and Canada, again succeeded in preventing requisite international climate change action.

Thus a genuine Carbon Price of US$100 per tonne of CO2 would permit a transition from coal- and gas-burning for electric power. Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming.
