COP 18: Selamatkan Rakyat, Turunkan Emisi, Hentikan Membakar Bumi

Pada 26 November – 7 Desember 2012 akan berlangsung KTT Perubahan Iklim di Doha Qatar. Dunia menjadi saksi meningkatnya krisis iklim. Mulai badai Sandy  di Amerika Serikat hingga banjir dan berbagai bencana lingkungan lainnya  yang makin rutin dan meluas di negara-negara Asia. Namun, para pemimpin Negara industri justru mempermainkan nasib penduduk bumi lewat ketidakpastian penurunan emisi, dan dukungan adaptasi bagi negara-negara berkembang dan miskin. Tak hanya menjadi batu sandungan dalam tiap KTT Iklim, yang membuat Kyoto Protokol periode pertama berakhir 2012 tanpa kesepakatan mandat penurunan emisi Negara Industri. Amerika Serikat berusaha membawa substansi negosiasi iklim ke dalam negosiasi informal di luar skema PBB - UNFCCC, melalui Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate. Indonesia adalah salah satu anggotanya. Bagaimana nasib Keselamatan Penduduk bumi ke depan?

Why the world is burning more coal

E-mail Print PDF

The inconvenient truth is that coal remains a cheap and dirty fuel — and the idea of 'clean' coal remains a distant dream.

This year's UN climate negotiations are in Durban, South Africa. Many delegates will already be looking forward to the chance of going on safari after their labors, visiting Kruger National Park or one of the country's other magnificent game reserves. But I have another suggestion. Visit the enemy. Just two hours' drive up the Indian Ocean coast from Durban is Richards Bay, a huge deep-water harbor that is home to the world's largest coal export terminal.

Asia Pulp and Paper’s big REDD scam on the Kampar peninsula

E-mail Print PDF

By Chris Lang, 10th November 2011

How can a company use the fact that it is one of largest forest destroyers in Indonesia to benefit from REDD? Easy. The very fact that the company is so destructive means that any forest in the company’s concessions is automatically threatened. So any patch of forest left standing must, by definition, be avoided deforestation.
