At the same time as the world balances on the precipice of climate change, Qld is rapidly increasing it's addiction to coal. Qld coal already contributes 30% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions - and the Bligh government is celebrating the forecast tripling of Qld coal production by 2030. Now a new coal port is proposed for pristine Shoalwater Bay in Central Qld.

Can we allow business-as-usual when it threatens the planet? Can coal ever be "clean"? How can we build an alternative, sustainable future?

Queensland Coal Production -- Condition And Trend [John Mackenzie ]

  1. 1. Queensland Coal Expansion Condition and Trend Analysis for the Queensland Coal Industry
  2. 2. Planting Trees, Changing Light-bulbs <ul><li>The carbon offset of planting 1 million trees … </li></ul><ul><li>would be completely negated by the emissions of the Queensland coal industry in under 7 hours. </li></ul><ul><li>The annual carbon offset from changing 20 million light bulbs from a 60-watt incandescent light bulb to a compact fluorescent... </li></ul><ul><li>is completely negated by the Queensland coal industry in 32 hours. </li></ul>
  3. 3. BP Global Choice Initiative <ul><li>“ We’re leading our competitors with this unique programme, which is achieving major success each year. To date, we’ve offset over 2 million tonnes of greenhouse gas through the BP Global Choice™ initiative. Seven years after launch, our BP Global Choice™ programme had made a reduction in greenhouse gas equivalent to taking over 400,000 cars off the road.” </li></ul><ul><li>This entire effort is negated by the emissions of the Queensland Coal Industry in less than two days (46.3 hours). </li></ul><ul><li>This means that this “unique programme” would have to run for 1,324 years to offset the emissions from Queensland coal for just one year. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Taking Every Vehicle Off The Road <ul><li>11.4 million vehicles for one year (ABS Release: 9309.0 - Motor Vehicle Census, Australia, 31 Mar 2007)  </li></ul><ul><li>Equivalent of shutting down the coal industry in Queensland for just 47 days… </li></ul>
  5. 5. Australian Reserves of Black Coal
  6. 7. Queensland Summary Statistics $17.9 billion $16.3 billion $17.8 billion Value of Exports 17,394 (March) 18,243 18,687 Employment 150.63Mt 153.36 Mt 142.86 Mt Exports (Mt) 170.38Mt 183.28Mt 171.9Mt Saleable Production (Mt) 2007-08 2006-07 2005-06
  7. 8. Queensland Coal Production
  8. 9. Queensland Production
  9. 10. Destination of Queensland Coal
  10. 11. Export Markets for Qld Coal
  11. 12. Export Value of Coal
  12. 13. Export Value of Coal
  13. 14. 2008-2009 Projections <ul><li>With modest increased volume </li></ul><ul><ul><li>7% in metallurgical coal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>6% in thermal coal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Increased Export Value </li></ul><ul><ul><li>From $26.6b - $54.9b in 12 months </li></ul></ul>
  14. 15. Queensland Government Response <ul><li>Increase the royalty on coal exports from 7% to 10% for export value over $100 (as of 1 st July) </li></ul><ul><li>Anticipated revenue from coal royalties up from $1.02 billion to $3.21 billion </li></ul><ul><li>Coal in Queensland to become around 9% of total state government revenue stream </li></ul>
  15. 18. Expansions to Port Capacity
  16. 19. Projected Port Capacities
  17. 20. Queensland CoalRail Capacity and Projections
  18. 22. Expansion of Production <ul><li>Currently 40 operational mines in Qld </li></ul><ul><li>28 advanced coal projects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>17 new mines </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>11 expansions of existing mines </li></ul></ul><ul><li>38 less advanced coal projects under assessment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not exhaustive, but considered by State Government as ‘of interest’ </li></ul></ul>
  19. 23. Coal Exploration and Development
  20. 25. Contribution of Coal Industry to Greenhouse Gas Emissions <ul><li>Current CO2 Emissions of Queensland Coal Industry 378 Million Tonnes per Annum </li></ul><ul><li>Projected CO2 Emissions of Queensland by 2025 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Assuming 370Mt/a target and 1.3% growth in domestic demand </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>848 Million Tonnes per Annum </li></ul></ul>
