089 - NEM generation vs elec emissions

Some recent news - the Australian Government Department of Energy recently released the 'National Greenhouse Gas Inventory' - a big, all-encompassing update of exactly how much Australia is emitting into the Earth's atmosphere through the operation of our economy. There'a whole stack of data in the December 2016 update.

The chart below shows the generation mix vs the total emissions for electricity - which have increased as coal's share has increased, over the past few years.
