UPDATE on the #Cumbria #coal mine decision: postponed again; now to be issued by 8 Nov 2022. Meanwhile, Port Talbot proposes moving to non-coal electric arc furnaces by early 2030s; British Steel can't use coal from Cumbria & steel across the world is decarbonising #ClimateCrisis
The new coalmine [is] expected to create 500 jobs, but [the Local Government Association] says [there is] potential for 6,000 green jobs in Cumbria by 2030,” Sharma tweeted. “[The Committee on Climate Change] has noted the mine would increase CO2 emissions by 0.4Mt [megatonnes] annually [with] clear implications for our legally binding carbon budgets.”
