article It’s hard to imagine coal mining being an environmentally friendly enterprise, but the industry is.
In fact, coal has a long and storied history of being a keystone of the Australian economy, and for good reason.
As Australia’s biggest coal producer, coal is one of the few sources of electricity that we can produce reliably, meaning we can keep a lid on our climate pollution.
While some environmentalists argue that coal is dirty and dirty for all Australians, there’s no doubt it’s a huge source of energy that contributes to our country’s overall economic prosperity.
But with all the uncertainty around the global coal industry and its potential impacts on the environment, this article is a must read for any climate change sceptic.
Coal is not the answer to Australia’s climate change woes, and climate change is not an environmental issue.
The story behind the coal myth and why coal is so important to the economy of Australia While coal mining is one big energy source, coal’s economic value lies in its contribution to the national economy.
While the economic value of coal depends on its value as a fossil fuel, Australia’s coal production is also a key component of our national energy grid.
It’s a crucial part of our energy system that we depend on.
This is because coal is a critical component of the power grid that we rely on for almost everything we do.
We use our electricity grid for about 75% of our electricity needs, and that’s because it’s the only source of reliable electricity that’s always available.
There are some interesting statistics that highlight how coal’s value as an energy source is an important driver of our economy.
The graph below shows how much electricity Australia uses from coal, as well as the price that the price of coal has to pay to keep the electricity grid going.
As you can see, the coal-fired power station (green) is very much a part of the national energy system, and the green line shows the value that the national electricity grid is receiving from coal.
As the green bar indicates, coal provides the electricity for the electricity network that is dependent on coal to operate.
If coal’s price were to fall, that would have a negative impact on the national grid.
The black bar indicates that it would reduce the electricity supply to the network that’s dependent on it.
That means that the network would be less able to cope with the increased demand from other electricity sources, such as solar and wind, that are also reliant on coal.
Another way to think of it is that when the price is low, the network can recover more electricity from coal and it doesn’t have to worry about having to replace the power station at the end of the day.
If the price was high, then it would need to replace its coal plants, and if that didn’t happen, it would have to invest in renewables, which would be more expensive.
Of course, this graph doesn’t include the fact that we’ve got coal mines and coal-burning power stations operating all over the world, as there’s always the possibility that we’ll have a situation where there’s a supply shortage and demand is outstripping supply, which will have an impact on our electricity supply.
However, this is exactly what happened with the global economic crisis in 2008 and 2009.
To see how coal is impacting the Australian energy grid, here are some numbers that illustrate how coal has affected our national electricity network.
Coal production in Australia has increased in the last few years In 2009, coal was responsible for the majority of Australia’s electricity generation.
In 2010, coal accounted for 51.5% of the nation’s electricity, and it was the only energy source that was supplying about 57% of electricity.
By 2015, coal-generated electricity accounted for just over 37% of Australia´s electricity supply, and was still the only major energy source to supply about 53% of that electricity.
However the world economy has been growing at a rate of nearly 2.5x per year, and demand has been increasing at a higher rate than supply.
So, as the economy grows and the demand for electricity increases, coal becomes more and more important as a fuel for our electricity network and a major contributor to our national economy, even though coal isn’t the only renewable energy source in Australia.
So, when you buy power from coal you should be paying close attention to the facts about the economics of the industry.
