New Zealand continues to mine, burn and export coal, despite the fact that, globally, coal is the single biggest contributor to ocean acidification and to the ongoing climate emergency. But what will the future bring? Coal has played an important part in New Zealand's history,... but plans for the expansion of mining now trigger battles whose long-term outcomes are impossible to predict. 'Fuelling Dissension' weaves together the historical, political, social, economic and environmental strands that underlie the struggle between coal mining and conservation. At the same time, this colourfully-illustrated book clearly and concisely explains the basic facts about coal - its formation, chemistry and uses - and provides useful insights into the coal industry. How can we sever our ties with this most polluting of fossil fuels as we head towards a low carbon future? There are no simple answers - but no time for delay.
