Coal - How is This Still a Thing?

Coal - How is This Still a Thing?

We blow up mountains. Which poisons the water.
We pay other human beings to go down deep underground to dig it out of the ground. We rent their lungs and their backs.
We ship it. Which spreads dust all over.
We "wash" it. Which requires chemicals. Which poisons the water. Ooops - we spilled it!
We burn it. Which changes the climate. Which produces mercury pollution. Which produces deadly pollutants, and acid rain. Which produces fly ash. Which has spilled. Which poisons the water.

Coal ruins the land.
Coal ruins the air.
Coal ruins the water.
Coal causes climate change.
Coal kills miners.

Coal kills.
Sincerely, Neil
