In the Indian parable, groups of blind people find themselves facing indistinguishable forms. Each has hands on different parts of a huge shape, which turned out to be an elephant-after some discussion. This is appropriate in Australia today as the coal industry (the elephant in the room regarding the country’s ability to tackle global climate change) is under increasing pressure from critics from various disciplines. It is an image. Of course, climate change activists would say that while the enemy is as enlightened as they don’t want to see the obvious truth, the blind are the supporters of the coal industry. News: Yesterday, Barbados UN Senior Advisor and Deputy Secretary-General Selwin Hart said at a Canberra conference that the world needs to “quickly and phase out coal” to avoid a climate crisis. He spoke in a pre-recorded speech. .. Australia’s electricity supply is increasing renewable energy production at a significant rate globally, but as Newcastle Herald previously pointed out, the coal industry has stopped the world from turning into a renewable energy nirvana. Is not … That is the limit of technology itself. Unless the United Nations expects First World countries to return to Third World status (and there are climate activists who may welcome such a naive future), research, design, and design future equipment. Coal will be needed to power the construction, which is needed to close the mine. Meanwhile, the debate over coal will resemble blind men and elephants. Australia is one of the world’s two largest coal exporters, along with Indonesia, so some people are targeting Australia. Others in the industry and the Morrison government may point out that Australia’s coal exports account for less than 10 percent of China’s domestic use. And Australia contributes less than 2 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. Some see the industry as a lifeline for employment. Others as polluters covering hunters with dust. All of this, and more. In the parable, the shape of the elephant was finally discovered in cooperation. The Morrison government needs to adopt a progressive net-zero goal. And the Zealots should accept that they too have to compromise. Problem: 39,663 Our journalists are working hard to bring the latest news in the region to the community.
