    So what’s another couple of thousand tons of carbon in the atmosphere daily?
    There’s PROFITS to be made!!

    No big deal. I’m sure that with all the money people save with cheap coal energy, they could buy a bottle of Windex.

    pretty soon we will all have those portable oxygen tanks. Think of the profits for the companies that manufacture those..

    Indeed, eventually they will be as ubiquitous as the little plastic water bottles.

    If we didn’t have coal, millions would freeze to death every winter. Coal is the cheapest and safest source of energy. If we didn’t have coal, and didn’t want people to freeze to death, we could put in some nuclear plants, but there will always be accidents like Chernobyl that kill far more than coal has ever killed.

    Sorry Michael, accidents in the mines and the diseases the miners take home from the mines have killed far more than Chernobyl.

    Michael does satire… read the link he provided… to that notoriously liberal Forbes magazine.
    Now I’m being sarcastic because Forbes has printed some global warming denying articles that I have shown (from data) to be garbage.

    But this article ends with the quote.

    Another way to describe this human health energy fee is that it costs about 2,000 lives per year to keep the lights on in Beijing but only about 200 lives to keep them on in New York.

    Guess that’s just the cost of doing business…

    Oh, dude, seventeen years I spent in the coal mines before I wised up and did other things. Don’t tell me that crap about “safe” energy when I’ve had too damn many friends die digging that “safe” energy out of the ground. Just state flatly that you don’t give a damn about anyone but yourself, and get it over with. http://www.msha.gov/FATALS/FABC2014.asp#.U5Yk1vldWNg

    All these “experts” on coal.. Yet NEVER lived in a coal town.. worked in a coal mine or heated a house with coal. .. Funny how a computer and an anonymous handle can make you an expert.

    Read Michael’s link. It’s not what you think.

    As usual, he was being subtly sarcastic, read the links he provided before forming an opinion.

    The war on coal is moronic. Some of California’s worst smog is coming from CHINA.

    Apparently you don’t live in CA, otherwise you’d remember what it was like in the 60s and 70s before regulations (what a nasty word) started cleaning things up. Hell, the Matterhorn looked like Bandini Mountain in those days. Or perhaps you don’t remember that little problem with “Acid Rain” in Appalachia, that was similarly addressed with (ghack) “Regulations”?

    The automotive industry said that requiring seat belts would destroy their industry. It goes on and on.
    .
    How about we start thinking about innovation in finding solutions to these problems, instead of throwing in the towel.

    Here’s your argument for doing nothing: “China’s doing it, nothing we can do, so let’s just keep crapping in our own nest and maybe our children will figure it out later.”
