Global Impacts • Hard facts unmask the fiction behind Coalition's 'coal comeback'. • There’s a long list of blame and shame for Australia’s threadbare climate and energy policy, but Turnbull’s party takes the cake • EU must shut all coal plants by 2030 to meet Paris climate pledges, study says. • Europe will vastly overshoot its carbon emissions target for coal unless it closes all 300 power stations, says thinktank Climate Analytics. • Fossil fuel divestment is worth $7tn globally yet Australia still clings to coal. • While the Australian government lags behind on climate change action, consumers, local councils and energy companies lead the way to clean energy. • Carmichael mine jobs need '21 times the subsidies' of renewables, says lobby group. • Federal funding for Adani project amounts to $683,060 a job, compared with $32,191 a worker in Queensland’s clean energy sector, 350.org says.

Global Impacts • We may be closer than we thought to dangerous climate thresholds. • A new study identifies an extra 0.1°C of human-caused warmin. • Barnaby Joyce won't rule out dumping Renewable Energy Target. • Deputy prime minister criticises ‘romantic’ targets set by states as some Coalition MPs call to ditch RET if US pulls out of Paris climate deal. • We’re now breaking global temperature records once every three years. • Denial and “alternative facts” haven’t stopped the Earth from warming to record-shattering levels. • We are destroying rainforests so quickly they may be gone in 100 years. • At current rates of deforestation, rainforests will vanish altogether in a century. Stopping climate change will remain an elusive goal unless poor nations are helped to preserve them. The conversation The guardian RMIT University© 13/04/2018 School of Architecture + Design 21
