Time is up for coal: environmental analyst | Environment | Reuters

goodbye, coal world.

don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

maybe, just maybe, we can a) save appalachia while b) stopping some of the effects of global warming while c) promoting other energy technologies and efficiencies while d) paving the way for china and india to find alternative sources of energy.

or we can kill ourselves, pretty much.

tough choice. to paraphrase bill hicks: "anyone here work in the coal industry? (applause) great--go kill yourself. seriously. now."

    i like coal fires, im going to get one for the living room. They're great for keeping warm on cold winter nights now that global warming has been proved a con, plus it just looks nice rather than a gas fire or electric one. im not burning poo in my house to keep warm so dont even go there swampy

    coal's going to be around for a lot longer than the green movement my eco looney friend so you should praise coal and what it has done for the advancement of humanity since the industrial revolution

    viva la coal industry. we need MORE mines, MORE miners and MORE coal powered electricity stations so any oil saved can be used to fuel cars.
