The dangers of coal August 6, 2007

Filed under: energy, solar, wind — terra @ 5:20 pm

Here’s another great reason for the country to move away from its dependence on coal. A coal mine in Utah has collapsed after a 4.0 earthquake, leaving 6 men trapped inside. This mine is southeast of Salt Lake City, in the desert of Utah – a great place to generate solar power. Coal-powered electricity is not only dangerous to the planet, but also to humans, in so many ways.

I hope those men get out alive.
