Coal is the most polluting of all fossil fuels and the largest single source of CO2 in the world. Currently, one-third of all carbon dioxide emissions come from burning coal. In the Philippines, eight coal-fired power stations produce 36% of the country’s energy emissions, and the government plans to build or expand nine power plants. The government is planning to expand its coal-fired capacity to over 2,000 MW, while new renewable energy projects are projected at less than 100 MW. The impacts of sea-level rise due to climate change are predicted to hit hard on coastal countries in Asia. Greenpeace demands improvements in the efficiency of Philippine energy systems, and encourages renewable energy as a replacement for dirty coal.
