About: Living with coal: Resisting the UK's newest mine
i,m very pleased to see these coal mines going ahead,i,ll give it 100% support,i burn (during the winter) over 3 ton of ordinary coal,that is opencast mined in scotland
various generations of my family were coal miners, massive industry gone abolished by greedy conservatives and deluded green activists.
Coal can be clean if its burnt correctly and the gasses treated.
Our country couldnt survive winters without coal fired power stations.
So called green energy is good when its available but even green warriors such as yourselfs moan and complain if they stuck a big wind turbine half a mile from your house then you have all the bird watchers complaining because the blades kills the birds then if theres now wind theres no power.
Then solar is very expensive and doesn't work very well this far north and hydro is a good green energy but then you will all complain when they build a great big dam made out of concrete one of the biggest contributers to green house gases so theres always going to be people complaining and problems arising.
I see no problem in coal climate change is a thing and it's been happening to our planet for thousands of years and will still happen even if we find a zero carbon energy source you cannot stop it it's the planets life cycle.
Money Talks..... Greenest government ever..... B******s
David Attenborough is on record as saying of the proposed Druridge Bay mine: "It would be shameful were the UK to open this new coal mine at precisely the moment the world at large is recognising the dreadful effect of burning coal on our planet’s climate."
It beggars belief that the UK Government would allow this to go ahead in 2018. It's like a terminally ill person who has been put on a life saving diet having a mad last ditch binge beforehand. Crazy!
Huge thanks to DeSmog UK for the opportunity to make this short film. It was incredibly moving to make, and to learn about the impacts of coal to local communities.
