'Peak coal' to see prices soar (interview with Richard Heinberg)

This week, science journal Nature says the world is on the verge of exhausting its cheap coal supplies.

The finding could also have implications for the controversial technology, carbon capture and storage. ABC (Australia) reporter Greg Borschman interviews Richard Heinberg.
