Coal Miner’s Daughter

Approximately 8500 coal fired power plants in the world producing 1/3 of its electricity needs! China continues to build them with 43 new coal plants under construction. It is also the number 1 emitter of CO 2 accounting for over 30% of worlds total emissions. America comes in second with less than 15% emissions of CO 2.

Loretta Lynn’s father would die from black lung disease at the age of 52. People much younger than that are being killed from the indirect effects of burning coal and it does seem to me that the West could carbon tax these plants out existence. Unfortunately because of inflation our leaders do not have the balls or ovaries to do that to the Chinese coal plants or even to ban Russian natural gas!

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
