Keith Pitt: Australia will keep selling coal for as long as the world keeps buying it

Resources Minister Keith Pitt has defended Australia’s decision not to join more than 40 countries which have signed a commitment at the Glasgow climate talks to phase out coal used for electricity generation. He says the Government will continue to sell Australian coal for as long as the world is willing to buy it.
— Read on www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/breakfast/keith-pitt-australia-cop26-coal-emissions-methane/13620966

sounding like a drug cartel boss, Pitt rants Australia will sell while anybody buying – he might just as well be marshalling enforcers in Opium wars or peddlers in addict territories in our own cities.

But “drugs” with side effects of global warming damage whole of planet life forms, not just addicts. So should peddling coal be a criminal offence?

Pitt has always been taking us backwards, downwards, dirty and brown but even with usual complacency at COP 26, surely they can rein him in to start heading forwards, upwards, clean and green?

Mini to unveil two new electric vehicles in 2023

Mini has announced plans to unveil two new purely electric vehicles in 2023, including the typical Mini 3-door and a crossover model.
— Read on thedriven.io/2021/11/08/mini-to-unveil-two-new-electric-vehicles-in-2023/

The last model powered with a combustion engine will be introduced in 2025, and by the beginning of the 2030s Mini says it will be an all-electric brand.

But Angus Taylor says no upgrade to tail pipe emissions from petrol cars until 2027, delay needed by “our refineries” to spend the $2Billion to clean sulphur out of petrol which, by then, will have marginal demand.

Australia has a problem and it is Morrison. He has not got the capacity for the job of prime minister. The longer he remains in the position the more damage he will cause.
