Author: Brigitte Nicolas

Categories: yBC Recent Features

As environmental activism reached a peak in 2013 prior to the Australian election, yourBusinessChannel interviewed a wide range of Australian personalities about the emerging War on Coal. Having reaped the benefits of a decade long minerals boom, activists now call for Australia to ban all coal exports because of climate change concerns.


While the IPCC's call to restrict global warming to 2 degrees is accepted by both the Australian Government and the coal industry, our interviewees suggest activists are promoting solutions which will damage Australia economically and do nothing to address climate change. Which approach should countries adopt to secure energy supply and address climate change in a meaningful way?

This Trailer heralds yourBusinessChannel's newest channel - examining energy and resource issues globally.
