Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions

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.&#.

Plans for housing and mixed use development were integrated with transit stations in seven towns to foster bustling street life and boost light-rail ridership. Paris's Luxembourg Gardens provides the foremost example of triangulation in practice.

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

Green Blog

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.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

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.
