And yes, fuck Coal. It pollutes, causes acid rain, destroys mountains, has massive health issues at all levels of extraction, transport and disposal, impoverishes communities and the coal ash is radioactive which nobody I talk to seems to know about. With the California announcements this week that they are going full renewable by 2045 we can hope that coal is really, truly over.

Fuck coal, fuck the coal miners and move the hell on to something that is not going to destroy the planet.
