The Coalition is backing a gas plant that also runs on hydrogen. Is this the future or a folly? | Energy | The Guardian

The 316-MW Tallawarra B plant south of Wollongong in NSW is a peaking plant, designed to fire up when demand for electricity is high.

Climate science tells us the world will likely need negative emissions technology – drawing CO2 from the atmosphere – if it is to meet the objectives agreed in Paris six years ago. The emissions from the gas burned at the new plant will ultimately add to the CO2 in the atmosphere, and they are avoidable. To borrow a phrase, you cannot offset your way to zero.
