The Coal Industry Is on the Decline and Could Become a Fuel of the Past Soon (Video)

By |2021-11-08T15:12:38+00:00November 8, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on The Coal Industry Is on the Decline and Could Become a Fuel of the Past Soon (Video)

Find out in this video why the coal industry is declining and what this means for Australia. Coal was the power source behind the Industrial Revolution. But, as the coal industry burns this fossil fuel, it releases vast quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. CO2 is a greenhouse gas and the most important driver of climate change. Consequently, scientists believe that global warming began in the mid-1800s as a result of humans burning coal. Today, the Earth’s surface [...]

The Vast Majority of Carbon Offsets Do Not Help to Combat Climate Change (Video)

By |2021-11-03T14:43:46+00:00November 2, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on The Vast Majority of Carbon Offsets Do Not Help to Combat Climate Change (Video)

Watch this video to understand why carbon offsets are not the best solution to combat climate change. 137 countries have made commitments to achieve net zero emissions. Many companies, cities and financial institutions have also made carbon neutral pledges. In 2020, there was a drastic increase in the number of climate promises made. Now, almost three-quarters of all global emissions are covered by net zero targets, with a large proportion through carbon offsets.  This is problematic because offsets [...]

Net Zero Commitments to Cut Australian Coal and Boost Renewable Energy Exports (Video)

By |2021-10-19T15:25:08+00:00October 19, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on Net Zero Commitments to Cut Australian Coal and Boost Renewable Energy Exports (Video)

 Watch this video to to find out what net zero commitments some countries have made and how this could benefit Australia. Japan, South Korea and China have all made net zero commitments by 2050 or 2060. These countries are also Australia’s largest export partners. They account for about two-thirds of fossil fuel exports. The Reserve Bank of Australia has conducted a study on the impact promises to decarbonise will have on Australia’s coal industry. There is a significant risk that [...]

Failing to Reduce Emissions Could Cost 51 per cent of the World’s GDP (Video)

By |2021-10-12T12:25:17+00:00October 11, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on Failing to Reduce Emissions Could Cost 51 per cent of the World’s GDP (Video)

 It is undeniable that climate change is having a detrimental impact on our planet. This video explains how failing to reduce emissions could cost 51 per cent of the world's GDP. A recently published study in the Environmental Research Letters finds that the cost of climate change has been severely underestimated. The international team of researchers conclude that the economic damage of global warming may be six times higher by the end of this century than previously thought.  This [...]

‘Clean’ Blue Hydrogen Found to Have a Larger Carbon Footprint than Coal, Oil and Gas (Video)

By |2021-10-11T22:21:25+00:00October 11, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on ‘Clean’ Blue Hydrogen Found to Have a Larger Carbon Footprint than Coal, Oil and Gas (Video)

 While blue hydrogen is seen as a "clean" alternative, this video shows that it has a larger carbon footprint than coal, oil and gas. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe. Like electricity, it is an energy carrier. It has the highest energy content of any common fuel by weight. There are many different types of hydrogen, categorised by their production method. For example, making grey, brown and blue hydrogen requires fossil fuels. In contrast, producing green [...]

New Report Shows Effects of Climate Change Worsening for Australian Farmers (Video)

By |2021-10-11T09:14:48+00:00September 29, 2021|Reports|Comments Off on New Report Shows Effects of Climate Change Worsening for Australian Farmers (Video)

 Find out more about the significant impact climate change is having on Australian farmers in this video. Australia has always had an extraordinarily variable climate, experiencing both droughts and flooding rains. But, climate change is making things worse. Winter rainfall is declining, whilst summers are becoming hotter, increasing the likelihood of bushfires. This is having “significant effects” on many Australian farmers, according to the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES). What effect is climate change [...]
