“Allowing coal to be used is highly subsidized action by tax payers, we clean up and we get sick. Go with solar and wind cheaper. As if emissions from burning coal weren’t a big enough threat to civilization, the byproduct from coal plants — coal ash — is also endangering lives. Coal ash ponds and landfills, which often sit adjacent to coal plants, have contaminated groundwater with toxic chemicals. That’s according to a report by the Environmental Integrity Project and Earthjustice, which found that arsenic, lithium, chromium, and other pollutants are present in groundwater near 91 percent of America’s coal plants. Polar Bears have mercury in their bodies from humans burning coal..Native peoples rely on polar Bear meat for life. Human caused Global warming is fast melting the ice which Polar bears depend on (that is how they catch seals, needed to get Polar Bears thru the winter. Go solar. Right now the Arctic is 50 degrees too hot..and we received their cold air all messed up. Go with solar/wind and drive/fly electric cars/planes It is the future.”
