Climate funds for coal highlight lack of UN rules

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 12/02/2014 - 00:30

In this Oct. 18, 2014 photo, an Indonesian fisherman stand on his a boat in a river near power plants in Cirebon, Indonesia. The sprawling power station that hums and coughs along this coast in Indonesia is labeled as a Japanese contribution to the global fight against climate change. The plants promote new coal technology from Japanese companies, which is cleaner than old coal technology but still pollutes far more than solar, wind or natural gas. Villagers nearby also complain that the coal plant is damaging the local environment, and that stocks of fish, shrimp and green mussels have dwindled. (AP Photo/Achmad Ibrahim)KANCI KULON, Indonesia (AP) — About $1 billion in loans under a U.N. initiative for poor countries to tackle global warming is going toward the construction of power plants fired by coal, the biggest human source of carbon pollution.
