Australia is the only OECD country to propose new coal mines on a scale so large that it will effectively double our emissions output, a new report has revealed. Global Energy Monitor’s report, released on Thursday, found Earth will surpass the four degrees of warming as outlined by the Paris climate agreement if all the world’s currently approved coal mines come to fruition. The report found coal producers are actively pursuing 2.2 billion tonnes per annum of new mine projects around the world.
