About: One Last Spark for Coal - Falling prices have had some asking whether there is a new future for coal


Clean, green Germany has recently completed a coal fired power station (2015) and is to build several more as part of its de-nuclearisation program. OK for some then!
I just hope coal becomes economically nonviable sooner rather than later. Sorry people will lose jobs but what we are doing to the atmosphere should be criminalized now we have the know-how to stop the pollution. My biggest complaint is that it will be left to economics to force the change as governments around the world have failed us in the most part.
They estimate coal mining adds around 2billion in health costs in Australia and I'm sure it will be similar for other countries which means that rather than reducing subsidies and adding them to coal they should increase renewable subsidies and taxes on coal
It's great to know that our grandchildren will still have the opportunity to get jobs as coal miners. Just like the good old days
It is better to have coal powered electric plants than to have nuclear powered electric plant.
Thanks for taking the time to watch and I'd interested to know if you think Coal has a future and where
