The workers spray paint a message reading “Yes to Coal.” Greenpeace activists have camped there for 3 days by erecting tents and the tower with banners reading "Quit Coal" and "Coal Causes Climate Change." The camp was established to oppose the coal power plant construction in Iloilo City. Greenpeace is demanding the cancellation of the coal plant.Locations:Iloilo City-Philippines-Southeast AsiaDate:15 Jun, 2008Credit:© Greenpeace / Vinai DithajohnMaximum size:3504px X 2336pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Activists-Bamboo-Banners-Climate (campaign title)-Coal-Day-Energy-Greenpeace activists-Hard hats-Industry-KWCI (GPI)-Low angle view-Manual workers-Men-Outdoors-Towers-Two peopleShoot:Quit Coal Tour in PhilippinesThe Quit Coal Tour in the Philippines is just part of Greenpeace's global campaign against coal. 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.
