$23-billion Carbon Loophole at Drax: CO2 emissions disclosure requirements legitimately conceal the true cost of damage to the planet

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Publication

This new case study shows how PAL’s Carbon Value at Risk (VaR) metric is used to determine the extent of carbon liability risk – the potential cost of damage attributable to carbon emission related anthropogenic (manmade) climate change. For users of biomass as a fuel source such as Drax power station, it highlights a potential $23bn ‘black hole’ between the expected loss and […]

Taxing all energy – not just fossil fuels – will smooth decarbonisation and future-proof paying the cost of the loss and damage attributable to manmade climate change that will prevail for centuries – long after carbon emissions cease altogether. To incentivise the transition from ‘dirty’ high-carbon fuels to ‘clean’ low-carbon fuels or energy, requires a […]

As Dent sits down in front of the bulldozers, an alien fleet of spaceships pounces. The aliens are putting a by-pass through […]
