China USA deal is hot media item said to be “game changer” but devil is in detail of a comment – “US just agreed to reduce carbon emissions to as much as 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. But US emissions increased from 5B tons a year in 1990 to 6B in 2005, an increase of 20%. So US is committed to being only slightly below 1990 levels by 2025. In other words, it will go on spewing an average of 5B tonnes/year into atmosphere, equivalent of taking a dump in your kitchen sink, every day, in the next decade, getting down to like 4.5 B tonnes/year in a decade. This is as close to doing nothing about the crisis as you could get.” Surely it’s time to reduce Australian dependency on coal, especially cutting subsidies to foreign companies?
