The Coal Retirement Plan
How billionaires could pay to keep coal in the ground.
This week we came across a brilliant article, crazy…but brilliant. A man named Robert Frost came up with the idea that instead of limiting the fossil fuels burned we (or rather people with more money than they know what to do with) could buy the land with the fossil fuels in it and own the mining right and well… just never let the mining companies own those rights. This article does a great job of explaining the whole plan Buy Coal Now! and a document of Frosts plan can be found here The Coal Retirement Plan
We also talked about El Nino, a weather phenomenon happening this year which can cause milder winters. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact its 20 Celsius today and its November!
Lastly the Paris Climate Summit is happening at the end of the month so we plan to be following that keeping you posted over the next few shows.
