  • Crusty Coal to Clean Kilowatts: Decarbonizing Australia by 2040 (pdf)
    2008 - Australian Society of Foreign Energy Executives (ASFEE)

    Climate change is not a technology problem. Climate change is an economic reform problem. If market forces are unleased against climate change, Australia can enjoy higher living standards, an improved economy, a healthier natural environmental and increased global economic and political power. With unrivalled resources of low emission energy, all cheaper over the long-term than carbon capture and storage or nuclear, Australia can become a global "clean energy superpower."

  • Carbon Footprint of Electricity Generation (pdf) (power point)
    Oct, 2006 - Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, UK

    All electricity generation systems have a ‘carbon footprint’, that is, at some points during their construction and operation carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted. There is some debate about how large these footprints are, especially for ‘low carbon’ technologies such as wind and nuclear. This POSTnote compares the life cycle CO2 emissions of different electricity generation systems currently used in the UK, including fossil-fuelled and ‘low carbon’.
