As we all know, Coal mining, transporting, and burning are very harmful to the planet. Coal is a huge source of CO2 emissions that contribute to climate change. Pennsylvania is a major coal state, contributing 1% of global warming gasses! Coal is the major source of utility-related mercury contamination, (98%) and a major polluter of water and air—responsible for 87 % of all Nitrogen Oxide pollution, and 98% of all Sulphur dioxide pollution.
Most of us do not think about the health hazards related to coal use. According to the Physicians for Social Responsibility, coal pollution is estimated to be responsible for almost 34,000 premature deaths each year! Coal causes many health disorders including asthma, stunted lung development, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke and development delay in infants.
Coal is not worth the cost to the Earth as well as the people on it.
