Dying coal industry, not so fast there, ladies.
Jun 9th, 2018 at 3:28am
 

Even with both federal and state labor going out of their way to destroy thousands of jobs in the coal sector, claiming is a a dead industry, it seems they may be just another bunch of lying idiots like the greens.

Resources loves the renewable industry, idiots willing to pay top dollar for intermittent power backed up by coal & gas. Metalliferous mining digging up the minerals to make turbines and panels to produce expensive intermittent power so dumb-arsed socialist can feel good that we are doing something about out 1% GHG emissions.

Cha fkken Ching miners.  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley




COAL prices are soaring again, with thermal prices at six-year highs and coking coal looking to push through the $US200 ($A262) a tonne barrier.

Spot prices for thermal coal cargoes for export from the Newcastle terminal have reached $US115.25 a tonne – the highest level since February 2012.

The price of Australian coal used for electricity generation has risen to its highest level since 2012 as hot weather across north Asia spurs demand ahead of the peak season.

“Supply is tight out of Australia. What has also happened is exports out of South Africa are down,” said Shane Stephan, managing director at New Hope, Australia’s third-biggest independent coal producer.

“That opens up the market for more Australian coal into Asia.”

The increased demand has led to a traffic-jam of dozens of ships waiting at Newcastle to load coal.

“You are seeing some real competition for access to thermal coal during this restocking phase in Asia,” Mr Stephan said.

“I suspect that pricing could go a little higher yet.”

Queensland operator TerraCom looks likely to generate sales of at least $48 million for the September quarter with its $1 Blair Athol coal mine, in the Bowen Basin, meeting demand in the Asian markets.

Strange it's been here all day and not a single post of confected outrage and denial by the inner city wankers who use their usual lies and obfuscation to cover the truth.

Australia stand alone with its rejection of the latest n coal technology that burns cleaner and more efficiently, thus saving the planet millions of tonnes of CO2.


Just shut it down and hope no-one notices the black outs and massive power bills.


When you produce only 1% of the worlds carbon, there is absolutely no need to shoot yourself in the face as a show of solidarity.  Smiley Smiley Smiley

The good old days of mining money as a miner are sadly diminishing.
That's why I got into support industry.
You can charge almost what you like and get away with it.


Two, perhaps three years, and I'm outa  there and off to see the world again.
Only difference is, this time I'll be paying😢😢😢😢😢😢

Ever notice the doomsayers only give us the per capita value and very rarely say anything about the percentage.

By percentage we are 15th on the ladder

By per capita we are 4th on the ladder

Behind UAE, Qatar and Kuwait.

Per capita, a meaningless statistic used by economists to confuse people.

How many gum leaves per capita in Australia.....???

who gives a............................ Cheesy

what about those volcanoes in Hawaii and Guatemala 

do you think they are adding to emissions somewhere?.

Quote:
Volcano experts say there’s nothing to show there has been a surge in volcanic eruptions - despite the deaths of almost 100 people in Guatemala and an entire suburb swallowed in Hawaii this week.

Indonesia’s Merapo also erupted last month.

Volcanologist Ray Cas from Monash University said the frequency of eruptions varies, and it’s simply down to technology meaning news and images of volcanic activity are more widely shared.



suddenly its drones that makes it easier for us to know a volcano is having a seizure.. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

in the past we havnt been fully aware  Roll Eyes again that surprises me...


what emissions  are volcanoes responsible for Ajax?


even earthquakes would make a considerable contribution I would think..

can they blame Australia for that as well?..

Yep volcanoes contribute to CO2 in the atmosphere, the doomsayers say that all the volcanoes in the world don't amount to mans emissions, but I find that hard to believe since we have about 3000 active volcanoes in the oceans.

Plus the ever increasing rate of CO2 in the atmosphere doesn't follow what mans emissions are doing and since the year 2000 mans emissions have sky rocketed.

The increase follows what the natural CO2 sinks are venting with an increase in temperature.

The per capita GDP means a lot.

Are you saying it means nothing, or that you don't know what it means?

Australia GDP 1.2 trillion

Australian Population 24 million

1200,000,000,000 = 50,000

What does it tell you...........????

Absolutely FA......................!!!!

Per capita we have more politicians
But worse roads, public transport and schools.

Per capita we have the lowest pensions, except for public servants and politicians who have the largest in the world.

Bring on the revolution.

These PARASITES are destroying our country.

GDP is a measure of activity in an economy, it can be useful but not in the hands of politicians.  By itself it makes no statement as to how useful or detrimental that activity is.
