About: CBSN Originals Preview: "Clinging to coal"
Even while coal is steadily being phased out people are working against there own interest by supporting an industry that isn't viable as it once was. It's the same difference any improvement on technology we used to use only wood on a fire and kerosene lamps for heat and light but now we have electricity and those things are phased out I imagine lumber sales dropped drastically upon the invention of appliances and probably forced a lot of people to go get jobs at Kenmore but it's inevitable nonetheless. People just don't like change it means uncertainty and adjusting ur life to something new and those old folks that vote don't like it. We can argue all day about what's true or not but the fact remains that options for energy other than coal are obviously expanding and becoming more and more prevalent and will eventually become the norm whether anybody likes it or not and if they don't wake up and start accepting it they'll be destitute and without a chance for a job they turned down on foolish pride.
Coal is not bad for the environment. Sure. How old miners become in average. Dust lungs, (fatal) accidents, drugs (painkillers) and so on. What a great life those miners have (NOT)!
Green energy is the future coal and oil are causing too much damage to the environment on a global level there are just simply too many carbons and greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere that are heating up the earth look at the rising oceans , and keep in mind this is Not just America’s problem it’s the entire world’s problem and it will take action by everyone on this planet collectively working together to make any real positive changes globally .....
How many families use to be generation farmers and how many are left? Take away the wheel loaders and power tools; give the miners pick-axes and wheel barrels then those mines will need to hire back lots more coal mine workers.
Hit job for the city slickers that want to sale the green con job. Also selling books for a agenda they like to hear about, “Fantasy “ Coal has the power, it made the wind mill which can spin the blade off and may break even. Big power is a thousand year supply of real power, COAL is real big power.. CLEAN COAL!!!!!!!!!
