Canary in a coalmine

by Gareth on November 2, 2008

From Greenpeace, timed to coincide with the launch of the new James Bond movie, we have Coalfinger (wot, no Shirley Bassey?). Full of smutty innuendo (geddit?). That’s Brian Blessed voicing the baddie – a wonderful over the top performance.

Meanwhile, big coal’s biggest critic James Hansen expresses disappointment with the targets set by Australia’s Garnaut Report:

That plan appears to have been written by the coal industry, and, if adopted globally, practically guarantees destruction of most life on the planet. I would be more critical[1. If that's possible!], except that much of the problem is probably due to our failure to make the climate story clear enough.

Ouch.
