Join #MugClub army. And together, we will destroy liberalism.
Dang the most dislikes I’ve ever seen on his vids.
The clean version of coals looks like metal that burns for a while.
Natural Gas is cheaper and cleaner so Coal is dead.

Brainless shill with a microphone.
What happens when the coal runs out?
What killed coal is fracking and the resulting cheap natural gas. Not Obama. Clean coal is really expensive to make "clean" and it cannot compete against natural gas at all. Solar is getting cheaper as manufacturing gets cheaper. Unsubsidized solar will soon become cheaper than all alternatives. Crowder, are you going to bring back Blockbuster? Netflix put at least as many blockbuster employees to unemployment. Down with Netflix!
Dammit we need nuclear. Energy of the future. Safe, clean and unstoppably powerful.
Almost all green energy companies end in complete and utter disaster.
I mean you could mention that "clean coal" tech needs huge subsidies fruition the govt too but then that wouldn't help your terribly researched rebuttal 🙄
The big problem with wind and solar is the output is pathetic. If you put up a 5 megawatt wind turbine it doesn't produce 5 MW 24/7/365, on average it can supply 1 MW 24/7/365 and you need to build a huge energy storage device to make it work. When they rate this stuff they rate it at it's maximum output, not it's consistent output.
Tried to watch this one .. detest Oliver so much that even if you raped his dumb ass intellectually (which shouldn't be hard to do), seeing and hearing that shithead is just .. too much.
This video didn't age well. Germany uses diversity energy from the middle east and africa.
Thank you for mentioning that thise 80k jobs were human beings. I grew up in the deepest poorest coal country but moved to the South when I was 12. Everyone that I knew growing up has been negatively impacted.
The alternative is nuclear power.
"Keep your environmental impact to a minimum" xD have you been back in Canada? Visit the fracking sites, talk to people who can't use their tab water anymore, due to chemicals and gas in their pipes.
This is a poor rebuttal. You have to twist in the wind quite dramatically to even accuse Oliver of being misleading, let alone wrong. I wouldn’t have made this episode and tackled somebody less well researched (such as the not researched Sam Bee).
The left by its championing of killing coal, crippling oil and hyping laws to curb global warming, is actually laying the ground work for the really big interests who want to build lots more nuke plants. And the Dems are leading the way.
Germany’s carbon emissions are not declining much, despite renewables increasing to almost 30% of the country’s power mix this year and over 50% of its installed capacity. Unfortunately, coal has also increased to about 30% and, along with power purchases from France and other countries in Europe, is used to load-follow, or buffer, the intermittency of the renewables.From forbes
I think solar panels aren't a solution on massive scales, HOWEVER they would decrease energy demand if they would be used on private grounds, like roof solar panels, many smaller houses with panels would decrease demand from infrastructure hence reduce the polution
Oliver sucks donkeys.

Coal stock

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.
