White House to South Africa: Let them eat cake

April 2, 2010

South Africa is becoming a high-carbon zone to attract foreign investment

The Guardian, April 1, 2010

Extract:

“Recognising that a tonne of CO2 from a South African coal plant is just as damaging as a tonne from anywhere else, the White House has signalled they won’t offer their support to subsidise the Eksom mega-coal plant in South Africa when it comes up for a vote at the World Bank next week.”

You can read the full article from the Guardian here

South Africa is fast running out of affordable electricity and a coal plant is the cheapest and most effective option.

Whilst Obama and Gore fly around in their private jets, people in Africa are living in poverty and the West seems intent on keeping it that way. How many more deaths and suffering do the poor have to endure in the name of “preventing climate change”. The world has gone mad.

Coal shortage may lead to Zimbabwe’s worst winter in the history of the country

Zimbabwe Telegraph, June 10, 2009

ZIMBABWE-BULAWAYO- Zimbabweans have been advised of intensified load shedding after revelations that four Zesa Units at the Hwange Thermal Station have stopped generating power due to the acute shortage of coal, Zimbabwe Telegraph reports.

With the country at the beginning of the winter season that always experiences an increase in the demand of power due to the cold weather, Zimbabweans are headed for the worst winter in the history of the country.

On Monday, all residential areas in Bulawayo did not have electricity, a development that also affected the city’s hospitals.

Last month Barack Obama wanted to classify carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant.

Now he wants to bankrupt coal plants, the mind boggles…..

25 protesters arrested at Australian power plant, will James Hansen fly to their defense?

By the blogowner, honestclimate, November 1, 2008

POLICE have arrested 25 people protesting at one of Australia’s largest coal-fired power stations but four others remain chained to machinery at the site, halting electricity production.

The four members of action group Rising Tide are chained to the conveyor belt which feeds coal to the furnace at the government-operated Bayswater power station in the New South Wales Hunter region.

“Those four have stopped the coal from being sent to the furnace,” Rising Tide spokeswoman Georgina Woods said.

The 25 who were arrested had been on a coal pile from which coal was scooped to go onto the conveyor belt.

Will James Hansen fly to their defense? Not this time as they were released without charges.

Ms Woods said all 25 were released without charge.

The protest sent a message to the Government that it was not acting fast enough to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Ms Woods said.

“We are waiting for the Government to announce our greenhouse gas reduction strategy in December, but it’s all going to have to start here, at the country’s equal largest power station, which is also the equal largest producer of carbon dioxide pollution,” she said.

“Actions like this are only going to become more common while the Government continues twiddling their thumbs.”

With an Arctic winter predicted for Britain

and Britain “quite simply running out of power”, with blackouts almost inevitable within the next few years.

Can Britain really afford such encouragement of vandalism of its power plants???
