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."
