About: Coal In Kentucky (Full Documentary)

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.
It's not impossible to replace the coal industry. I have a nerve sheath tumor in my spine and can't work very little income can't afford to pay power bill. I installed solar power for $8000 now run generator 2 hours a day in the winter months costs $20 a month. Next year wood gasification will mean no power bill at all.
I am responding to this problem i use solar power.
Hey miner's it won't be long before you are replaced by robots. Today it's probably cheaper to send robots into dangerous environment than making it safe for people.
Labor is still exploited. Labor today gets a smaller income to profit ratio.
Big coal suppressed other sources of energy along with big oil.
There is new and old green tec wood and waste gasification clean steam solar wind geothermal tidal earth battery and many more. If suppression of tec stops there would be plenty of energy. Mono energy sources means monopoly is possible. I can't afford grid power.
Ur a cry baby and a dumb ass keep ur norse out of thats whats with the world worry about urself not every body else
This is such bs, there's no such thing as clean coal. There are SO many other ways to generate energy, from baseload to peak load - coal isn't only unnecessary, but it literally CAN'T continue to be utilized.
I heard that Trump is going to put the unemployed coal miners back to work on the southern border wall construction sites to get them off welfare.

Coal stock

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.
