There was such an uproar in response to this hilariously crap PR campaign, that America's Power has killed it. It's not on facebook, and it's not even on their own website any more. Fucking classic. That PR agency won't be popular next year. America's Power's has made some weak excuse for killing the little bastards. "Behind the plug" - so that's what it was?
There's a useful new article on envirowiki on CCS and Clean Coal: Carbon Capture and Storage in Australia.
The article covers all the projects planned in Australia.
The term's been popping up a LOT lately, so I thought I'd give a few links to pages worth reading (there's not much point me re-doing it, it's already done so well)
Steve from Rising Tide Newcastle has written a clean coal fact sheet, with a lot of good stuff about carbon capture and storage.
Just listening to radio national news/current affairs, and this piece about the Geelong ford factory shutdown/worker layoffs and the newsreader says, roughly:
"The Factory's manager admitted today that the decision was a hard one, given the impact it would have on Geelong"
ONE word in that really gets me riled up. It's the word "admitted". Let's get something straight here. Companies don't admit messages like that.
it's true, this website told me so:
not that I didn't take part in making that website. but that's not the best bit. The best bit is that this website is actually a parody of a site set up by the NSW Minerals Council, as part of their "Life: brought to you by mining" re-education campaign (http://www.nswmining.com.au).
Luckily for me, I'd never heard of Neal Boortz up until the release of the IPCC's Summary for Policy Makers, 2007. then in comments on an intro report on the SPM on realclimate ( http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2007/02/the-ipcc-fourth-assessment-summary-for-policy-makers/ ), a few people mentioned his latest attack: http://boortz.com/nuze/200702/02022007.html
have a read. it's quite entertaining, even in it's simplicity. I thought I'd take a look at it, and rebut some of the more interesting points. If you think I've missed an important one, let me know, I'll have a go at it.
