"This is a classic case of political greenwashing," said Dirk Jansen, a spokesman for BUND, a German environmental group. "Obama pretties up his own climate balance, but it doesn't help the global climate at all if Obama's carbon dioxide is coming out of chimneys in Germany."
Last year, Germany's carbon dioxide emissions grew by 1.2 percent, in large part because the country burned more coal.
ï»¿US sending dirty coal abroad
Attn Dina, first of all in your report when calling coal "dirty coal", you misrepresent what coal really is. You probably weren't aware that "coal" is used in "emissions controls" in Nike Air Huarache Japan
gasoline powered engines. Most likely you have been driving all this time on one hand criticizing coal, but yet using it in your daily living. And perhaps you've used "coal with your water purifier" at one point in your life if not still using it? Yes, that's right, many water purifying devices use "dirty coal" to purify water with its "coal activated cleaning" abilities. There are many other uses for coal but, I won't bore you on your "anti coal" report or comment you've written for others to read your perspective. But it would be nice to read a little less boas in media reporting, rather than regurgitating environmental talking points. Here's the truth in reality, the environmental community have Obama wrapped around their idea of Ice Age turned global warming turned climate change. Problem remains, very few are buying onto this chicken little cry from the extreme far left, that Obama is attempting to persuade the electorate. America has other "more pressing issues" than this facade, [now] climate change to worry about on place of additional regulations. The dirty you say is in coal is a political smokescreen for the real issue at hand FORCING AMERICA Air Huarache White Womens
German environmental officials say the recent boom in coal fired power is making it harder for the country to meet its climate protection goals, even as it has increased renewable energy and participates in a carbon market that has lowered emissions throughout Europe.
"Energy exports bit by bit are chipping away at gains we are making on carbon dioxide domestically," said Shakeb Afsah, an economist who runs an energy consulting firm in Bethesda, Maryland. coal exports, with three new terminals along the West Coast, America could be fueling demand for coal when many experts say that most fossil fuels should remain buried to avert the most disastrous effects of climate change. didn't supply the coal, another country would. coal has a negligible global footprint and reducing coal's use worldwide is the best way to ease global warming.

When the Prime Lilly, a massive cargo ship, set sail from Norfolk recently, its 80,000 tons of coal were destined for power plants and factories in South America. The 228,800 tons of carbon dioxide contained in that coal disappeared from America's pollution ledger. But it still pollutes the planet.
"There may be a very marginal increase in coal exports caused by our climate policies," said Rick Duke, Obama's deputy climate adviser. "Given that coal supply is widely available from many sources, our time is better spent working on leading toward a global commitment to cut carbon pollution on the demand side."
accounted for 9 percent of worldwide coal exports in 2012, the latest data available.
Guidance drafted by White House officials in 2010 did outline how broadly agencies should look at carbon emissions from U. S. projects. Four years later, that guidance is still under review.
Over the past six years, American energy companies have sent more coal than ever before to other parts of the world, in some cases to places with more lax environmental standards. appear to be making more progress than it is on global warming. That's because it shifts some pollution and the burden for cleaning it up onto other countries' balance sheets.
to buy into unproven technology that many know does not work.
"They have sat on their hands," said George Kimbrell, a senior attorney for the Center for Food Safety, which has sued the administration over this delay. and the world. needs to be pragmatic on this," said Jason Bordoff, director of Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy. "If our coal exports are very small and having no or little Nike Huarache White Mens impact on global greenhouse gas emissions . the government has to take into account the economic and foreign policy costs of restricting exports."
This fossil fuel trade threatens to undermine President Barack Obama's strategy for reducing the gases blamed for climate change and reveals a little discussed side effect of countries acting alone on a global problem. climate policy," said Roger Martella, the former general counsel at the Environmental Protection Agency under President George W. Bush. "Although the administration is moving forward with climate change regulations at home, we don't consider how policy decisions in the United States impact greenhouse gas emissions in other parts of the world."
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. off dirty fuels blamed for global warming, energy companies have been sending more of America's unwanted energy leftovers to other parts of the world where they could create even more pollution.
It's a planet hungry for American coal. exports to Germany have more than doubled since 2008, providing a cheaper alternative to cleaner burning natural gas and a replacement for nuclear power, which is being phased out after Japan's nuclear accident.
Bordoff was a National Security Council energy and climate change adviser to Obama until January 2013. cut coal consumption by 195 million tons, about 20 percent of that coal was shipped overseas, according to an AP analysis of Energy Department data. coal in the ground. But a growing share is finding its way abroad. and is already experiencing one of the country's fastest rates of sea level rise.
