Shoot: Quit Coal Tour in Philippines

GP01HWE
The 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. Early in the Quit Coal Tour, activists protest at the Pagbilao coal plant, one of the plants currently in the government's expansion plans. Greenpeace demands improvements in the efficiency of Philippine energy systems, and encourages renewable energy as a replacement for dirty coal. Greenpeace is calling on the government to pass the Renewable Energy Bill to facilitate the massive uptake of renewable energy solutions.
