Join #MugClub army. And together, we will destroy liberalism.
The coal industry rips up mountains and destroys riparian environments. Destroys the aquifers. That is strip mining. Underground mining collapses about 6 to 8 feet and changes aquifers while all the mining acidifies the waters and IS environmentally devastating.
Lived there, done that
Never listened to so much ignorance shouted out with so much energy and conviction. Great Job guys!
Please do a "change my mind" on clean energy near Dallas ... I will GLADLY change your mind. Not try ... I WILL change your mind :)
I'm with 99% of the time Steven but this is one subject where you are sorely wrong consistently. Yes Germany has had some problems converting to green energy ... largely due to the fact that green energy as a technology isn't fully mature yet. It would mature much faster if countries like the US would commit to adopting it and transition away from coal and other fossil fuels. You like to make the claim that green energy just isn't feasible and you're afraid of being dependent on foreign energy... how about you Google where Iceland gets its power. The transition to green energy isn't going to be easy and there will be problems. But that in no way means we shouldn't do it. Here is what I like to say to my fellow conservatives who think climate change is a myth and all this money spend on renewable energy is a waste ... Imagine 20 years from now in the USA where NO ONE has a power bill ... period. Think of what you pay right now for your electricity ... I pay roughly $200 a month | $2,400 a year and those costs go up constantly. My mom's average electric bill at my age was $60 a month. Now imagine not having to pay that bill ... ever... doesn't exist. I don't know about you but that is a world I want to live in and we certainly can get there if we INVEST in renewable energy. It is an INVESTMENT which means yes you'll have to spend a lot to get there and yes it might actually increase carbon emissions at first but the ROI would be fucking MASSIVE !!!!
ok in 2:20 Oliver refers to coal, specifically coal, the substance itself, not coal jobs or coal tech but coal and the burning of coal as environmentally cataphoric. 2:23 Cuckder literally just says "based on what" implying that the statement is false. Cuckder is an idiot if he honestly thinks that burning coal is not bad for the enviorment.
Almost as bad as your net neutrality video
Crowder did cite his sources. Just not the ones Liberals like. They want you to cite Vox, CNN, all those fake news media outlets.
Also solar and wind are incredibly inefficient and expensive so yeah coal definitely has a place right now from an economic standpoint

On that note, in terms of energy gleaned, both petroleum and coal are very inefficient (this is according to the thermodynamics course I took as an aerospace engineer) so part of the push for new forms of energy is actually from an economic/efficiency standpoint
So you deny the environmental damage of things like China’s problem with air quality isn’t real then? That’s just a conspiracy ok gotcha...I’m just messing I actually want a real response to me some facts cuz I’m open to changing my mind...I could be wrong I’m no scientist I’m just repeating what I’ve heard

Petroleum, coal, etc. are huge problems for large cities because of air pollution no? Prove me wrong
Germany hasnt moved completely to green energy. In fact its the coal industry that has lobbied our government that is booming now. Our chancelor dpesnt want to endanger coal jobs.
"clean coal" is that like clean poop?
My dad has worked for the railroad for 25 years and in 2014 the Norfolk southern building where he worked shut down because the company could no longer support so many jobs with the war on coal. 200 families lost their main source of income and 300 had to relocate (my family included). Under Obama’s administration we constantly feared the loss of another branch and my father possibly completely losing his job even though he’s close to retirement. Thank God that Donald Trump is helping protect coal workers jobs again. People have to understand it’s not just miners who are dependent there are offices with hundreds of workers dependent on coal as an industry.
Yes! lets ignore the fact that burning coal also releases mercury into the environment. Especially to sea life, the fish we consume comes back to us.
You keep asking what other than solar and wind should we use if not coal, nuclear, hydro electric dams because they are bad for the environment according to the left and I keep thinking what about geothermal what about tidal and wave turbines and truthfully the answer is never simple and I think the key will be to find the right combination of all forms of energy extraction at least until we build a dysonsphere.
Environmentalism is the big sacred cow of libs these days. They came out to attack this video in the comments more than any other crowder video I've seen.
Green energy isn't substantial enough to support all of society not to mention the dangers of solar farms such as killing birds many of which are endangered species. Nothing like spreading mass hysteria to sell something like green energy. Good job Al Gore.
cough Nuclear energy cough
2: 36, it has gone up by only 2 points which I think may be due to increasing population [which I didn't check] but coal has not totally removed as per many articles and news resources. Please elaborate on your points.
I am a 1 issue voter. Coal. I’m from western Kentucky and my ENTIRE family is completely dependent on coal in some way. Anyone who comes after coal is coming after me and my family. I vote for coal.

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.
