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

  • Queensland Coal Expansion Condition and Trend Analysis for the Queensland Coal Industry
  • Planting Trees, Changing Light-bulbs
    • The carbon offset of planting 1 million trees …
    • would be completely negated by the emissions of the Queensland coal industry in under 7 hours.
    • The annual carbon offset from changing 20 million light bulbs from a 60-watt incandescent light bulb to a compact fluorescent...
    • is completely negated by the Queensland coal industry in 32 hours.
  • BP Global Choice Initiative
    • “ 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.”
    • This entire effort is negated by the emissions of the Queensland Coal Industry in less than two days (46.3 hours).
    • 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.
  • Taking Every Vehicle Off The Road
    • 11.4 million vehicles for one year (ABS Release: 9309.0 - Motor Vehicle Census, Australia, 31 Mar 2007) 
    • Equivalent of shutting down the coal industry in Queensland for just 47 days…
  • Australian Reserves of Black Coal

  • 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
  • Queensland Coal Production
  • Queensland Production
  • Destination of Queensland Coal
  • Export Markets for Qld Coal
  • Export Value of Coal
  • Export Value of Coal
  • 2008-2009 Projections
    • With modest increased volume
      • 7% in metallurgical coal
      • 6% in thermal coal
    • Increased Export Value
      • From $26.6b - $54.9b in 12 months
  • Queensland Government Response
    • Increase the royalty on coal exports from 7% to 10% for export value over $100 (as of 1 st July)
    • Anticipated revenue from coal royalties up from $1.02 billion to $3.21 billion
    • Coal in Queensland to become around 9% of total state government revenue stream

  • Expansions to Port Capacity
  • Projected Port Capacities
  • Queensland CoalRail Capacity and Projections
  •  
  • Expansion of Production
    • Currently 40 operational mines in Qld
    • 28 advanced coal projects
      • 17 new mines
      • 11 expansions of existing mines
    • 38 less advanced coal projects under assessment
      • Not exhaustive, but considered by State Government as ‘of interest’
  • Coal Exploration and Development
  •  
  • Contribution of Coal Industry to Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    • Current CO2 Emissions of Queensland Coal Industry 378 Million Tonnes per Annum
    • Projected CO2 Emissions of Queensland by 2025
      • Assuming 370Mt/a target and 1.3% growth in domestic demand
      • 848 Million Tonnes per Annum
