Join #MugClub army. And together, we will destroy liberalism.
Oh youtube imbeciles, so this is where you congregate.
sadly for you crowder the end of coal won't be stopped.
I reject your facts and substitute with my own.
Does anyone else thing John Oliver looks like Gonzo from The Muppets?
We have moved to 100% green energy here in Germany? Tell me more about that. Because when i look out of my window, I see coal power plants.
How did USA reduce CO2 output?
Soooo, I live in Germany and as far as I‘m concerned, we are still burning a shit ton of coal. The statistic you showed even proves that. Most of the facts in this video are bullshit and researched from heavily biased and unreliable sources...
Hi Crowder, I like your stuff but there is a factual innacuracy there. You said Germany moved to "green energy" I guess you used that as an umbrella term for renewable energy. And while we use a lot of renewables, we are a far of the 50% mark. This was actually kind of a political image campaign. In light of the fokushima nuclear catastrophy the anti nuclear voices in the populous grew so loud that chancellor Merkel signed the atom exit plan, to shut down Germany's nuclear power plants. But the sustainability of green energy on peak electrical draw times was still not there. So we turned old coal powerplants, that mind you had been shut down when germany moved to nuclear, back on to power the high power draw of our industrial sectors as well as peak times in the day. I could go on for hours on how the green party pushed the construction of Windparks in useless places. And while coal powerplants do some of the most efficient emission cleaning they are still one of the most dirty power deliverer.
I really hope people are not dumb enough to think Coal is a good way to go. You have to be a special kind of moron to think Coal is good lol unbelievable.
You might want to work on your ignorance. You applaud Jon Oliver for 'citing his sources' but I've now watched [painfully] you blow unsubstantiated opine for 3 videos without once doing the very thing that would have that pesky duo of 'logic' and 'fact' to back up your prattling. Nada. Zip Zilch.

The funniest [in another one of your videos] was a grab shot of a magazine with highlighted text while never telling us which magazine it was. You have plenty of room in the 'Show More' part here to include some links to show your [ahem] support for these opinions but I just get a load of 'who shot John' and unsupported nonsense that people like your fans here WANT to hear. Truth be damned as long as it fits my arrogant agenda.

The reason that coal mines were being shut down was 1] it is a dying industry wherein other forms of energy can be efficiently created and dispensed and 2] the amount of preventable tragedies that occur in these mines while the owners and CEO's lie about the causes and are less than honorable to their workers. Also it is misleading to only refer to 'Barrick Obamas' [Bob Murray's pronunciation] when it comes to a supposed 'war on coal' see:

Can't dispute opinionated ignorance so I'll just leave you and your confederacy of dunces to clap each other on the back with how much you hate 'liberalism' while supporting the Stalin-esque takeover of my once beloved country by oligarchs. You twits are no more than the 'red caps' hauling the luggage and rolling out the red carpet for the new 'Corporatocracy'. United States of America, Inc. LLC.*

*Except in this case the corporations control the state. No matter your action or opinion before the takeover you will still be just another slave on the woodpile.

PS "Eat Shit, Bob".
Everyone who cares about energy should hear what Kirk Sorensen says. He is on youtube.
Where the fuck did he get 10.000.000 dollars
Why does this video have so many dislikes?
It is all LOGIC.
Isn't apple and google getting subsidize by the government too
Couple of sources for you:
-Forbes Article stating that the reason for Germany’s increase in carbon emissions is strictly due to a burning of lignite, one of the dirtiest coals imaginable. So while 30% of their production is from renewable sources (not 100% as crowder insinuated) the increase in carbon production is from 23% of energy coming from lignite coal factories. So while green energy sources do create interesting challenges in regards to how to properly store and distribute energy, stating that green energy sources cause an increase in carbon emissions is patently false. I dislike this line of reasoning as it looks to use a factually uniformed position to try to create a sense of reasonable doubt in the viewers mind about the benefits of green energy.
-this is a report published by the US department of energy illustrating the concept of transaction costs when applied to renewable energy. Transaction costs is essentially the risk reward for changing from one system to another. It has long been observed that green energy would be beneficial to the state of our economy (especially if you factor in the long term health effects of the energy source) would benefit from transition to a renewable energy based system (see source 3). This specific instance refers to the high transaction costs for local businesses and the fact that transitioning to solar would be too much of a risk for any individual business owner, however through subsidies the businesses are able to make the transition to a clean energy source, which saves money for the business and the government, all the while preventing pollution and lowering Co2 emissions. Things that I think we should all be able to agree are in the best interest of not only the American people, but the world as a whole. As you your self have boasted about in past videos, Crowder, the USA is a cultural trend setter around the globe. While you illustrated this point in regards to pop music, you can also see it in our countries attempts at attaining our freedom through other means, the US is a trend setter in many more ways than simply the social sphere. If we pass up on this opportunity to invest in a better, cleaner and healthier future of energy emissions what kind of example would be setting for the rest of the world and how would we expect to even begin to mitigate the effects of climate change without attempting to address the issue by subsidizing the free market to encourage economic development in a sector our government deems necessary. This is called fiscal policy, and like it or not it has been used by governments to bring us technologies that would have been otherwise too much of a risk for individual businesses. Such is the case for the formation of the internet, of jets, GPS and a number of other technological advancements we take for granted today.
This is a report stating that solar and wind are generating jobs at 12 times the rate of the rest of the economy. Sure chalk this up to subsidies if you want, but regardless this is irrefutable evidence of a successful governmental program. They enabled the green energy market to become a viable option in the free market years, maybe even decades before its time. And with current carbon emissions at what they are this still very well could be a case of too little to late. But that is only a better reason to double down and invest in renewable energy, hold ourselves to strict emission reduction standards, like the Paris accord. While I appreciate the wonders that unbridled capitalism has brought the world, if we don’t act soon the free markets solution to limited resources will be to put a price on them. And the day I see a price placed on “clean air” or “potable water” as if they aren’t basic human entitlements is the day I lose all faith in humanity.

Please respond to this with attempts at constructive debate. Or if you think I’m a stuck up snowflake libtard let me have it I guess, free speech is an incredible gift, I would love to see it used for a contrasting of philosophical ideas. But hey Ad Hominem attacks are allowed just as much under free speech, so the full range of responses to my comment are at your disposal, choose wisely.
I am literally watching Trumps MAGA rally Wheeling WV right now as this man is saying Trump will never be able to bring back coal miner jobs.🤔
Kinda funny; rebutting comments should be more about facts I guess; on the first point Oliver said the 50k were not created, but you never refuted that, just said what happend under obama; so, no rebutal
Second, where are your scientific bases to say coal emissions are not dangerous where 97% of the scientific community supports that assesment?
Third is quite clever to cherry pick stats.... but tendencies do not lie....
forth... didn't you like the irony? although I would love to see your facts on your assesments
Thank god somebody is rebutting this limey idiot John Oliver. We have clean coal burning capabilities that allow us to keep the environment clean (as if anybody believes that humans are responsible for dramatic climate changes), in addition to oil and nuclear power. President Trump is doing what he promised to bring back jobs, and allow America to use the immense amount of energy we have. If you don’t like it, you should probably find a new country.
You never clarified the first point which is that trump brought back only 1300 coal jobs instead of 70000 jobs

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.
