To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

US Shale Gas Drives Up Coal Exports - Tyndall Manchester Research

A report by researchers at Tyndall Manchester has concluded that whilst the US is burning less coal due to shale gas production, millions of tonnes of unused coal are being exported to the UK, Europe and Asia. As a result, the emissions benefits of switching fuels are overstated.

( Looking at this report after  reading The Hostmen - The World's First Fuel Cartel gives a whole new perspective on who is representing what - and why. I noticed  this site while scratching my head over the mission statement for Cefas, while somewhat impressed by thoughts of the historical research database available on ocean currents and conditions as recorded for centuries by the Royal Navy. The historic voyage of the Beagle to the Galapagos included such recording ; standard logs even then which assist in fixing position. The Royals profit quite handsomely from 'climate change adaptation' while mucking with global energy markets.  )
