Clean coal is like good cancer – it doesn’t exist

'Safe' climate means 'no to coal'
About three-quarters of the world's fossil fuel reserves must be left unused if society is to avoid dangerous climate change, scientists warn. More than 100 nations support the goal of keeping temperature rise below 2C. But the scientists say that without major curbs on fossil fuel use, 2C will probably be reached by 2050. Writing in Nature, they say politicians should focus on limiting humanity's total output of CO2 rather than setting a "safe" level for annual emissions.

This interesting isn’t it because NIWA just happen to be a half owner in a coal company. I wonder where they would be on this issue - climate change scientists call for coal to no longer be burnt, NIWA owns half a coal company, where would their interests be and why was prominent climate change scientist Jim Salinger sacked from NIWA this week?
