About: Coal: Energy Resources Heritage Coal
Coal help Great Britain transition into the industrial revolution, which built and sustains our modern world. It too bad most people are not aware of this fact.
Coal was a good energy source when we did not know any better. The strip coal mining between Jasper and Banff is an environmental disaster. Mountain ranges have been removed along with the forests and rivers. It is equivalent to the oil sands ponds. To top it off the area is a big part of the headwaters for the North Saskatchewan River. Look at the photos by following my name to Google+. There is nothing to brag about nor can anyone justify what is continuing to happen.
