>>741724788 >Dumb white people can't learn anything else.
Sure. Whites are responsible for like 96% of everything. Literally. If whites are dumb, every other race must be ROCKS.
> They need government welfare to protect their jobs.
The largest employer of blacks in the US is the government. As far as whites go, statistics are fudged by calling even illegal mexican immigrants "white" when it comes to perpetrating crime or benefits.
> No different than niggers.
Honestly, already blew this out of the water.
You're an anti-white, racist, ignorant piece of shit. Like all darkies, you bite the hand that feeds you.
>>741724356 you do realize that the pic on the left is yosemite national park. It still looks like that today. the pic on the right is from the oil sand fields in canada. CANADA!! You fucking autistic bitch. kill yourself.
I have a buddy who is pretty high up at one of Australia's largest open pit coal mines. He keeps offering me a stupid high paying job. Why? Because China and India are the two largest buyers of Australian coal. They LITERALLY can't dig it out of the ground and ship it to them fast enough.
Yup. One of the reasons why Lake Winnipeg is having algae blooms is the run off from farming isn't being flushed out of the lake like it normally would thanks to the dam on the Nelson river. The algae just keeps blooming and dying and piling up as toxic sludge on the bottom of the lake. Not only that but the marshes and wetlands surrounding the lake are dying too. Studies conducted by the U of M have shown biodiversity taking a huge hit since the 1990's.
>>741726009 no it wouldn't. Many of the national parks have abundant natural resources. the smoky mountains have coal deposits out the ass, but it s protected area. you sound like a stupid liberal who posts based on half witted emotions instead of relevant facts and topics. I bet you wept when trump was elected like the weakling you are.
Normally, water would flow into the lake as runoff in the spring time, raising the level. Throughout the summer, the water drains away, carrying shit with it.
The dam prevents this natural flushing. Instead, the level of the lake is kept more or less constant so agricultural runoff stays in the lake longer. Long enough for the algae to benefit from it and bloom out of control. There have already been proposals to remove the hydro dam(s) downstream of the lake in order to save it.
>>741726356 "Protect the wildlife" isn't relevant to this topic. It's not economically viable to extract coal except at massive scale, and most of the massive scale deposits are gone. Solar and wind have 0 increment cost, only operating costs, and liquid and gas fossil fuels burn much more efficiently, cost less, and are easier to distribute. Coal has no future. Even the Chinese are moving away from it, because they're smart enough to see the writing on the wall.
>>741727044 I get all that. What you fail to explain is why it's being praised in media as a great option to non renewable energy. Dead algae that turns the water into toxic swamps should be a dead giveaway to why this isnt an option. But it is. Hydropower is a common energy type. In addition to a sustainable fuel source, hydropower efforts produce a number of benefits, such as flood control, irrigation, and water supply. Yet you say it turns water into toxic swamps.
Because the unions and the miners are too pussywhipped to demand the actual cost to their employees of digging out the coal. These niggers are coming down with blacklung before 40 these days and they keep silent because they're so assblasted.
If the cost of coal actually included the medical costs incurred from workers making themselves fatally sick, it wouldn't be viable at all.
>>741727073 It's about time, time to design and build new plants. Time to retrofit steel mills. Who going to pay for all of this. Coal is cheap and all the infrastructure to mine and build it exists. I'm all for alternative energy, it's just going to happen anytime soon.
>>741724356 >why ancient dumb americans still mining coal to produce energy? As opposed to Germans who built a glorious nationwide solar array that doesn't work because the sun doesn't shine in Germany? Seriously.
>>741727840 It makes it harder when the gov puts tariffs on nonamerican solar panels. It could be done, yes it would be costly but these companies have plenty of money. They rather see it fill their pockets then help the nation/world
>>741727987 >least profitable Doesnt matter if its profitable. It provides thousands of immediate jobs mining it, more refining it, even more selling it and allows for machinery to use it to be useful and create their own markets.
because the environmental movement discredited itself when they went crazy protesting nuclear power.
This is what is going to happen, no matter what treaties get written or who signs them. We will use fossil fuels until they are pretty much gone. Countries are already cheating on the Paris agreement, so its all bullshit to make people feel like something is being done.
>>741728213 Yes exctally they don't care about anything except their own bank account. They don't care about the world, it's their oldfag generation. Hopefully the upcoming wealthy will take a 20%(completely arbitrary number) or so profit cut and care about humanity more than their bottom line.
>>741729005 >>741729147 Furthermore, all a firm needs to do in the short run is to pay off its variable costs. Really it doesn't need to make a profit so long as it can reasonably pay for tomorrows labor. It can sustain losses while remaining in business so long as it can pay that particular kind if cost. F it can pay for its fixed cost too (ie. Loans to pay for land), then it can enjoy what you communists refer to as profits.
Which needs a lot of energy to create the farms and panels, a lot of materials, and a lot of rare earths/exotic elements that aren't good, at all, for the environment. Getting them is as destructive, if not more so, than coal mining.
Look, as I said.. when it's FEASIBLE, I'm game. Until then, I'll remain logical and educated while I laugh at liberal retards like you that live on rote and feelings instead of reality and fact.
>>741729268 This is wrong. Some resources are too costly to extract relative to the price they go for in the resource market. There must first exist demand for the product before there can exist a profit and if an industry is able to at least project future profits then it'll enter the market to produce that product. Please read a book.
The most significant uses of coal are in electricity generation, steel production, cement manufacturing and as a liquid fuel.
Steel structure Different types of coal have different uses.
Steam coal - also known as thermal coal - is mainly used in power generation. Coking coal - also known as metallurgical coal - is mainly used in steel production.
Other important users of coal include alumina refineries, paper manufacturers, and the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Several chemical products can be produced from the by-products of coal. Refined coal tar is used in the manufacture of chemicals, such as creosote oil, naphthalene, phenol, and benzene. Ammonia gas recovered from coke ovens is used to manufacture ammonia salts, nitric acid and agricultural fertilisers.
Thousands of different products have coal or coal by-products as components: soap, aspirins, solvents, dyes, plastics and fibres, such as rayon and nylon.
Coal is also an essential ingredient in the production of specialist products:
Activated carbon - used in filters for water and air purification and in kidney dialysis machines. Carbon fibre - an extremely strong but light weight reinforcement material used in construction, mountain bikes and tennis rackets. Silicon metal - used to produce silicones and silanes, which are in turn used to make lubricants, water repellents, resins, cosmetics, hair shampoos and toothpastes.
>>741728626 coal is the second most used fuel for obtaining energy, only second to oil. coal produces more energy and burns cleaner. americans use coal rest of retard world still using oil like the mongoloids they are.
>>741730022 As your life withers away on a pointless image board, at least you can remind an anon that they forgot to add three words to their preface... While also ignoring their correction they posted seconds later.
Congratulations, you have reached the precipice of your existence. I can assure you that its all downhill from now.
>>741729276 Sure, buddy. The young, hip millennial generation will be totes caring and generous and make a better world because they care for all of humanity so much. Just as soon as they can get rid of the annoying old people they hate.
>>741730715 If a firm can successfully develop a fuel superior to coal in terms of both output, consumption and cost/profitability, then that resource would eventually render the coal industry redundant... But that has yet to be the case.
For example, improvement in extracting oil from the ground (trying something new) led to the virtual extinction of the whaling industry in New England.
>>741730689 I was joking. Most rich people will only care about the bottom line and don't care about who they fuck over. The new generation all think they would change the world if they got rich, but in reality they would just do the same shit.
