About: Andrew Szydlo's Chemistry of Coal

Can't stop watching his lectures! He's such an amazing person!
why he shouting and getting excited?lol calm down old man!
Dr Szydio (brilliant polymath that he is) should retire and let some younger blokes earn the money which he no longer needs. We might also get a lecture with less um um's.
Kudos for the person making the captions :D
Whew! I'm exhausted!
He may be rapid fire, but he explains it so well. A few things would've been interesting to know/see more of but that's a lot to get through as is. It'd be great to give him more time to move less frantically...albeit entertaining when he does that too. Hope he has another one out soon.

I hope I have this much energy at his age- wait I've never had that much energy...
Save the planet, Climate Change is real, stop education of coal and other fossil fuels
Pure tap water. now thats an oxymoron
this man, just fantastic. put one of him in every classroom across the world and watch humanity expand into the future with science. Keep going oscar!
Dammit Oscar pump them bellows!
Awesome that oscar is not wearing safety glasses but has the hardest job :D
This video is amazing, I really enjoyed putting this into my head!
Coal formed during the carbonifurous in large quantities because plants had just started producing lignins and bacteria didn't know how to break it down yet so the material basically piled up en mass without decomposing and being reintroduced into the carbon cycle.
Great lecture, from a great guy.
A few pauses in-between sentences would make this lecture even better.
How did the arsenic and lead get in the coal? (Or how did it get in the trees?)
I’d be a chemist now if my teacher in the 80s had this much knowledge and passion to teach. A fabulous lecture. Thanks
One important thing the professor did not talk about is this; coal can be reformed into alcohol, as all carbon based materials. The EPA, about 20 years ago, approved of "higher mixed alcohol" as an additive to gasoline to make it burn cleaner. Also, higher mixed alcohol can replace gasoline and burn about 95% cleaner in most cars, trucks and ships. Higher mixed alcohol is also biodegradable, water soluble and sustainable. Please do your "due diligence" on this matter, you will be surprised.
He can hardly finish a sentence but I somehow love his presentations...

...keep going Oscar, very good!

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
