Coal quietly doing its part to ruin the environment


While all the attention is focused on emissions, high gas prices, climate change and wars over oil, coal is quietly retaking its former place as one of the dominant forms of energy production on the planet. And just like 200 years ago, when London was a soot-covered hellhole, coal is polluting the living hell out of the environment, especially in China (though you’d think by now we’d know better.) But I’m reasonably certain if we just hold a few more giant concerts (which don’t burn much carbon, nosiree) everything will be just fine.
