Carbon border adjustments on exports, foreign banks not wanting to loan to us, not a promising looking future for Australia. We must look like an embarrassment on the world stage, just about every other country is moving to do something in a hurry except for us.Thanks for that, some good summaries of things in there.
Its worth noting at this point that international shipping and aviation falls outside the UNFCCC. Emissions from these dont count towards any country's emission targets.If you think 80,080kW is huge, wait until you see the torque figure. Meet the Wärtsilä RT-flex96C, the most powerful internal combustion engine ever made.www.drive.com.au
I know marine engines are pretty hefty, but this line got me - "Fuel consumption is, as you’d expect, pretty hefty, the Wärtsilä lapping up 6283 litres of heavy oil diesel per hour. But, while the pure consumption number seems large, it is in the world of marine engines at least, super-efficient."
this makes me sad
This project is interesting. Nuclear kinda freaks me out, but I understand what he's trying to do with this.

It is also why they can burn bunker C etc.Its worth noting at this point that international shipping and aviation falls outside the UNFCCC. Emissions from these dont count towards any country's emission targets.
The International Maritime Organisation is working on shipping emissions. Its slow and behind UNFCCC actions, buts its not nothing...
