  8. The real problem here is that America is not using as much coal as it once did. The rest of the world is still mining coal, so the miners have no real leverage. If they were to suddenly stop mining, America would simply import coal. Unless America's coal demands increase dramatically, our coal miners have no real leverage to strike with.

  9. THE BEST STEWARDS of CLEAN ENVIRONMENTS are individuals in a CAPITALISTIC society; conversely, the WORST STEWARDS are the fascist-socialist CENTRALIZED COMMAND and CONTROL BIG GOVTs; where such, time and again, has been demonstrated throughout HISTORY. The reasons for this are basic, aligned with NORMAL human behavior: there is tremendous incentive to take care of what one owns — pride of ownership — while conversely, other than what is required by fascistic law, hardly anyone gives a krap about the upkeep of some "absentee-landlord" communal property. Just look at ANY govt housing project.

  12. Climate change is a natural process, there is not ice melting, all is fiction. Sciences have proven thst the climate change mess is fiction, and man can affect climate in a very limited way. Clean air and clean water are easily attainable with honest and compulsory international effortd , not by having the countries with norther cities to shoot themselves on the groin to placate the flakes among 7s that spew baseless, doctrine based on their political ideas and not in reality! Energy , should"d be cheap, available snd a local resource preferably. Solar and wind, are ineffective, and uneconomical, and are useful , yeah! But not the answer. Nuclear power is the cleanest and can be reworked with things like NaCl based salts in a melted fashion, or thorium reactors.
    At the moment coal should be used, improved, researched and encouraged. Energy saving technology, we should encourage the wasteful use of energy. Travelling for unnecessary things should be discouraged, air travel for frivolous causes , should be discouraged. Energy , is vitwl and should be used with care.

  13. Nuclear Power is the Future. Lets get started!

  24. Keep coal energy alive. Coal is black but when burn it's red hot. It's called calorific value which is measure of heat energy that converts water into steam to run turbines and generate electricity. Humans feed on electricity because they can't see in night and can't depend wholely on torch light's and lantern's. This huge electric load demand can be met with coal fired power plant's to generate electricity and also use for district heating.

    Now in 21st century having advanced technology the coal fired power plant's are great potential.
    Green deal only shuts off jobs and crisis of electricity. Green deal calls are a misleading propaganda which is amazon green forest deals and nothing related to electricity.
