Same topic : Coal : new report from GWPF

Coal will become more in demand than oil by 2020 driven by growth in China and India, despite campaigns to reduce carbon emissions across the globe, a new report reveals.

9:30 AM, Thursday 17th October 2013 BBC Parliament TV
House of Commons Live Energy and Climate Change Questions
Live coverage of questions in the House of Commons to energy and climate change secretary Ed Davey and his ministerial team.
- No doubt it will be stacked with DramaGreen activists, scientists who are "on message", but speaking outside their area and they won't allow any skeptical questions nor skeptics to speak.

Remember the honourable 5 MPs who voted against the Climate Change Act and count how many other MPs do paid "work" for Green Energy orgs

Are the BBC paying eco-protestors ? and campaigning against coal electricity ? at 2.15pm on Radio 4 there is a docu-drama about the Greenpeace activists who broke into the Kingsnorth Power station in October 2007,
It's a REPEAT (from 24.05.11 Greenpeace plugged it on their website )
- It doesn't say the writer Julia Hollander is an activist, but she usually writes from memoir and she wrote about being an activist in 2008 in the Guardian
She just blogged

The fact that the activists were aquitted on the grounds that they saved the world …even the legal system got it all those years ago; why can’t the Great British public?

- Is it supposed to prime you for the documentary about the future of the coal industry that they have on at 3.30pm ? It seems inefficient of the BBC that Radio 4 has had 3 different documentary teams have progs about the future of Coal Electricity .. The previous seems quite balanced , but Costing the Earth usually goes for the DramaGreens viewpoint

Tom Heap investigates how Britain will provide energy, as six coal-fired power stations are due to close by 2015 and the cost of fossil fuel is set to rise. Shale gas, biomass and carbon capture and storage are suggested replacements, but concerns over environmental issues and cost-effectiveness have been raised, leaving the country in debate about where next to turn to meet the growing demand for fuel.

- Costing the Earth 9 May 2012 : Return of the king :dirty old coal
- various documentaries on fracking

That cannot be the right answer. A rhetorical question regarding the previous sentence

“Actually what will happen is that you will have less investment, probably higher bills over time and an increase in fuel poverty. That cannot be the right answer.”

Ice free by 2019? seems to me the prediction of an ice free year for the Arctic covers every year until about 2040.

- Jit you stupid person ..This is not how DramaGreen universe works you are not supposed to go into detail & check the facts and maths; rather you are supposed to be emotional & take it all at face value.
- The idea that you even thought about checking facts ..shows how UNCOOL you really are !

BTW - I have travelled in Harbin & Inner Mongolia. 100 odd years ago the Russians bought that area and used it for their first trancontinental railway to the Pacific. The city has loads of pedestrian tunnels so you don't have to walk in the freezing streets during the winter months.

put the BBC story next to Shukman's 2009 story Artic Ice Free by 2019

Re my earlier post: I followed the link provided in the email (takes you to gofossilfree.org (not going to link to it...)). The tour actually runs from Berlin to Amsterdam and thence to Blighty. I couldn't find any info about how the tour is going to be fossil free.

Disappointingly it seems to be a bunch of people travelling all over the place using fossil fuels and then pontificating about how fossil fuels must be banned, not a bunch of people touring the world without using any fossil fuels to do it, which actually would be far more informative and entertaining.

Apparently McKibben has already toured 20 US cities, although sadly not naked on the back of a rainbow-coloured unicorn.

"Kumi Naidoo (Head of Greenpeace)"

Isn't he otherwise occupied, or has he abandoned his arctic activists to their fate? Surely the least he could do is negotiate for them to be incarcerated somewhere more comfortable..?

Squawk!
