About: Why there are twice as many solar jobs as coal jobs
Mine coal today. your grandchild's house will be underwater in 50 years
strange 'cause he brought back those jobs
What happened she said. Lol. Why more jobs in solar than coal she said. Lol. One answer for all her crappie reporting. Government Subsidies. As soon as the money started dropping off so did the installations. Duh. Hundreds of millions of dollars wasted on failed solar companies. Why don't all you tree huggers stop using electricity from the grid. Stop flying, driving, dining out and best of all. Stop farting , per AOC. Yall's goddess. Trust me, no amount of your wasted energy is going to make one iota of difference. The earth has its own plan as it always has. It's gone from hero to zero a few times over the past 13 billion years. WTF makes you over educated windbag's thinks you or we can do anything to stop natural evolution? It's just another way to devide us. Have a good weekend
The only thing coal is gonna benused for years from now is for preserving steam engines
So we're going to slaughter the Earth to take 50,000 jobs?
science and facts, "the sun rays are there whether we use them or not, however the coal is beneath us, and the bedrock we stand on - if we take it away we are destroying the earth .. which one should we use?"
trump, "ThE sUn RaYs ArE ..whatever, we'll use the one that destroys the ground we stand on !" 🙄
Not a fan of coal but , the job's done once you do the installation.
trump wants to bring back coal mining even if coal mining causes horrendous amounts of carbon emissions because he doesn't believe in climate change at all 🙄
Burn old used wooden tools instead of coal
Huh maybe that wont last long
Thats cool Im still searching for a solar team to hire me on. Hopefully soon
natural gas is just as bad because extraction methods
He could have made it a priority to retrain coal workers to specialise in the solar industry. After all, they are basically supplying energy - so just upgrade people's skills.
The day solar light is declared as something to be charged is the day Republicans will abandon coal and move on to solar energy. It's the only reason they still swoon for coal: a voting base.
I don't understand the republican argument; "Let's put thousands workers in dangerous, toxic caverns to mine an almost worth-less material which when used hurts the environment, hurts our health and makes little money to begin with", instead of I don't know...creating a program to train the miners to work in the renewable energy industry and bring America into a cleaner, safer and more profitable future. I wonder, when the world transferred from using Oil Lamps to Light Bulbs was there a campaign to save the jobs of Whalers? What about when transferring from Quills (feathers) to Pencils and Pens? Continuing to use out-dated, expensive, and dangerous technology when there is a safer, cheaper (in-the-long-run) and cleaner alternative is the definition of idiocy. Don't get me wrong, I'm sympathetic the miners whom have lost their jobs; However, such a thing is a price of necessary progress and in order to balance this out, I would create a free program to train the miners to work in the renewable energy industry or create a program to send the miners to College to pursue a degree of their choice for free or at a greatly reduced cost to them. This solves 2 problems, firstly this would prevent miners from becoming unemployable (due to the lack of skills outside of coal mining) and would increase the number of educated people in areas dependent on coal-mining which often have a lower percentage of college graduates, more education is always better in general.
I can barely wait for the comeback. Black lungs are cool. Sign me up.
I think they should let the coal industry die naturally...just like any other industry before mechanized agriculture and electricity. That's just how it works, the coal industry can lead to health problems and pollution...why would anyone choose a future in coal mining rather than the clean and more effective solar power?
Can solar cell panels and windmills provide all the energy needs of a city in the Arctic and Antarctic on a non-stop 24/7 basis? Can solar cell panels and windmills provide all the energy needs of a vertically integrated iron and steel industrial production facility on a non-stop 24/7 basis? Can both solar cell panels and windmills provide a steady 24/7 base load energy output regardless of hurricanes, tornadoes, hailstorms, thunderstorms, lightning storms, snowstorms. rain storms, etc?
The real reason why there are 2 times more solar jobs than coal jobs is because of ADVANCED COAL MINING ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES. These new coal mining machines can do the job of 50 to 100 men and mine more than a dozen times more coal per man per day. That's 600 to 1200 tons of coal produced per man per day for coal mining is now a heavy high-technology mechanized and mechanically automated industrial operation whereas solar is so labor intensive and energy intensive that it is energy negative "MEANING IT CONSUMES MORE ENERGY THAN IT PRODUCES" and solar is vulnerable to climate and weather fluctuations and extremes and needs TAXPAYERS PAID SUBSIDIES JUST TO MAKE THEM ECONOMICAL. Coal, oil, natural gas, and the right kind of nuclear reactor technologies needs no subsidies and are not affected by climatological extremes and disruptions, and by weather fluctuations.
