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.

Whilst co2 levels are at record highs, the world is no warmer today than it was in 1998 and a recent cooling trend has begun. Surely natural forces must therefore have a larger impact on the earth’s climate than human C02. What looked good in theory is clearly not happening in the real world.

Whilst millions upon millions are being squandered on trying to stop climate change, something we don’t have much, if any, control of, there are other pressing global issues which need serious urgent attention right NOW!

The issue in Zimbabwe is a case in point. The world idly stands by whilst Robert Mugabe and his goons wreak havoc on the lives of many innocent people forcing them to flee Zimbabwe. Some of those who fled from Zimbabwe to South Africa recently got the treatment as depicted in these photos by those with anti-foreigner sentiments.

If Zimbabwe was an oil rich country, would the West still be standing idly by?

Climate changes, always has and always will.

Meanwhile Africa Burns
