About: Coal In Kentucky (Full Documentary)

I hate to say it. we can't live without coal. our thirst for energy is too great. is wind and solar enough too produce it's self? and if it is what the cost going to be. we need to work on all our resources to make it all work.
Get retrained to produce renewables; have some concern for your grandkids! Not for the dumfp! Who BTW shut sown coalminds today!!! And you supported him😃 Man dmfp sure screwed you guys!!

Screw you Biden inbreeding BULLSHIT
why do we have to burn coal and not natural gas we have unlimited from food and compost
If the U.S. stopped using all greenhouse gas producing energy, the impact on global warming will be almost nothing, China, India and the third world continues to produce greenhouse gases at an ever increases levels.
3:18 cunt needs to clean up his desk
when your ground starts crumbling and you get earthquakes and houses sink into the ground like in the uk you know youve gone too far .
even 30 years after we cut coal down we still are suffering from coal production and we still ave not cleaned up the mess yet .
so i simply cant see how the usa can do that in any time soon . american buisness owns the statutes and buisness rules the economy .
american buisness and economic ignorance will not bring back people who die from poisonous water down stream from these mining sites .
fracking mines take decades to heal . poisoning everything . even us . imagine every thing you eat being tainted with poison !
well that is exactly what is going on now and has been for decades . your cancers and metal sulphur mercury poisoning kidney issues live rissues heart abnormalities and the whole enviroment is doomed with coal . just look at china and learn from it . you wont be able to breathe clean air in 50 years as the #
pollution is causing pollution everywhere on the planet as these rivers mix with sea water . you eat the fish the food from the sea and the toxins there too .
coal is poisoning the world not just the area . thats a plainly defined fact . people need to use other sources of power instead which create plenty of jobs .
even more jobs in fact . it is a small modest step for such an empowered country . with people needing pride in their own land and trust in government .
the whole of america can profit from other power sources . even more profit . wind turbines are expensive but who cares ! your profits are massive enormous amounts of profit its simply what keeps them doing it . about a million each about 30 million return on each one installed . or more !
kentucky coal is not the only coal infected enviroment . nuclear and biodegradeable fuel sources are easier and well managed sources of future fuel advances . with waste managment hardly impacting the enviroment as much as the impact as coal .
the companies just want to hang out until the last minute and second producing coal fired power stations .
coal is old news around the world and carbon capture is not needed and not economical . running at the cost of nuclear powered stations .
imagine an almost free energy from the sun wind or water wave energy with no greenhouse gas anywhere ?
the posh view is to impliment something but wait on the push from the goverments .
putting co2 into the ground will kill people silently . slowly overnight deaths of millions of animals sleeping on the ground ?
algae is a cool way but not the good for us either . it has uses but not as a significant as other much cleaner fuel sources .
some with no carbon footprint .
only the use or ability to get the people to realise what the effects actually are on everyone . not just good americans .
people in europe woke up to this 50 years ago . why is america so backward in this if not intentionaly by big buisness . for monetary profiteering .
as you now see saving the planet is for everyone not just me or my thoughts . or yours .
kind regards .
I don't know when I went to school in 1975 they said there was three hundred years of coal left in the ground they use in that that bastard that guy just don't know what he's talking about
President Trump ~ You do have a Clean Coal Solution!
If you want cheap energy you need coal.
I’m so glad President Trump is bringing back coal. Trump 2020
Centralia PA. Google Maps and hit the Terrain. Now you know Coal.
wind is free, so is solar, get over it.
Solar and wind is a bad joke .
Heated my house in Geneva.ohio for twenty years in a vermont castings fireplace insert .Ohio coal.$100.00 a year .
Must be a good job.....I do not see any thin coal miners in this doc.
china brings... 1...2  NEW COAL FIRED power plants EVERY WEEK, NO POLLUTION CONTROLS.. so whatever the US/Europe does bending over backwards for THE ENVIRONMENT!!!! for the next 20 years which cost a LOT to implement ... Chindia negates in 6 months.    a planet of slums by 2050... the US of mesico by 2050, open borders by 2025?... 50% poverty class by then. I wont be here, no kids since all girls are born pregnant now and cant make it past 16 without getting pregnant
What is in dire need is the development of a large scale geothermal power generating system implemented in and near yellowstone. There is more heat there than all the coal produced in the past and producible in the future. Upgrade the nations power grid to be able to distribute large amounts of electrical energy from geothermal sources and shut down all nuclear power plants and coal fired power plants because there is an enormous amount of heat at Yellowstone that is just begging mankind to set an example of just how clean and safe this energy source can be. It will not be cooling down anytime soon as in hundreds of thousands of years so what is stopping us?, BIG OIL BIG OIL BIG OIL BIG OIL CO.
Even as the amount of coal grows new jobs for miners are not being created. The number of miners has been declining since 1984. The reason is technology and machinery. When you add in mountain top removal a team of 5 or 6 guys can bring in more coal in an hour than an underground mine can bring in per day. The funny thing about coal has always been the wealth created from coal is not anywhere near where the miners who dig the coal live.
Thank you for this documentary. So well done.

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.
