LOL, do you mean the Australia who sells coals to the Japan who loves to build new coal-power plants all over Asia ? Japan's argument is basically "our new coal plan is cleaner, if you replace all your old plants with our new plants, we'll be reducing CO2!". I mean, makes sense, but the CO2 from building new plants would probably not be even out by the reduction for X years, by then the "new" plants have become "old.

All coal is dirty. No such thing as clean coal.

And Australia could think about new industries other than the dirt.
