About: Coal In Kentucky (Full Documentary)

This is all bs. Theres nothing wrong with coal. Global warming is bs.
Vehicles driving around on the road is more toxic than coal. Coal destroying the climate is bs
Renewables are not sustainable, ie. it is not available 24/7 throughout the year. Solar is not available at night while wind turbines depend on the available of wind and must be turned off during stormy conditions. Nuclear remains the only alternative for coal, but it also has serious storage problems of spent products. Underground sequestration of carbondioxide is not required because high levels have proofed to be advantageous to hot houses and tunnel farming. Very high levels of carbondioxide is characteristic below the canopy of rain forests, in fact the huge bio diversity in rain forests requires very high levels of carbon dioxide.
Mm. Jhh
@6.18 the problem reveals it'self.."...born in California, Worked for apple computers..." well that sort of background aint working to well for the US as a nation.
Friends of Coal
We have the world's 2nd largest reserves of natural gas after Russia. Natural gas is the new fuel. It's cleaner, burns more efficient per metric tons, and its easy to extract. Thus, more and more coal plants are being shut down or converted to natural gas. The canary in the mine is what do we do with this abundant resource that we no longer need but that can be sold to developing countries and a hefty profit. The answer? Mine and sell as much as you can before other countries switch to natural gas.
If anybody thinks that the United States is gonna run on SOLAR and WIND to generate the power it needs on a daily basis we don't need those people telling us how this country was developed.. At best, SOLAR is only reliable 25% of a 24 hour day.. At best WIND is only reliable less than 20% of a 24 hour day.. Ask any Company that Manufactures Aluminium if they are able to manufacture their product with that kind of energy..Lying and Criminal Activity by Governments was even prevalent as far back as 1820 when land rights was stolen from land owners for the mining of coal.. sigh..... Somebody in Europe said that this is the way you make electricity.. A trucker I talked with told me "Unless the wheels are turning, he is not making any money".. Somebody in Europe is making a lot of money selling these TOY WINDMILLS.. However, they don't make any power when they are not turning.. The real criminals here are the people running the United Nations..
Ah...2010, when Zero was in office and smug libtards were confident that a carbon tax was just around the corner. lol
as soon as demos get carbon tax coal will no longer be a problem demos need source of income to advance socialisim
Well if they didn't make it illegal to generate your own power, and if they actually put people to work on clean energy, we wouldn't have this issue, but you know how corporations and lobbyists run the government.
Coal is dirty, hard to get, even harder to transport, burning it causes emphesema, acid rain..there is nothing good to say about coal and there is always trouble with the miners.
Coal is the way to go
We will work towards ending coal
It's a shame that people talks so bad about coal i was born in kentucky i luv the state it's the best in the world if everybody unplug your phone computers off and live off the grid we wouldn't need it so bad
Well, I was interested until the 7:20 mark. Co2 is not a pollutant.
The biggest problem the world is going to face is over population and having enough fresh water. Burning coal is nothing compared to that. The coal is there for a reason. Dig it up and use it I say.
Liberal pukes hate coal and freedom.Go screw yourself AL Gore.Make America great again, go trump.Liberal pukes want to tell us how to live,and they have a bigger carbon footprint than anyone.

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.
