Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down.

Workin' in a coal mine, WHOOPS, about to slip down.
Canada has plans to eliminate coal burning 100% by 2030. Already in the province of Ontario, 100% of all coal fired power plants have been shut down, replaced with nuclear, wind, and natural gas power plants. Canada has almost as much natural gas energy as coal energy, so that's why the shift to gas is not hurting us much. So while coal is amazing, it is just TOO DIRTY to use these days. For future use we would have to 'gassify' coal, and turn it into a form of gas that can be used in our gas fired power plants we have now just recently built.
Check out Black Lung Disease, very disgusting. Coal is destructive to the atmosphere and to the lungs, terrible source of energy.

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.
