It is important to maintain good eating habits and do exercises routinely, not only because it makes us physically see more slender and attractive, but because our internal organs work better and feel very well what will be reflected in the appearance and obtain a total welfare.

I guess the to go is building and re-planning the cities in new ways and investing in public transportation! This way we could save much more energy. And we could drive only when necessary.

coal still produces almost half of our electrical energy. But unless we demand radical policy changes in the form of drastically improved energy conservation and efficiency, we could be stuck with coal for a long time to come.

On top of this federal largesse, state and local governments coddle coal with hundreds of millions per year. The Kentucky state government’s net subsidy to coal is $115 million. Virginia grants tax credits of about $26 million to power plants just to burn Virginia coal, and doles out credits ranging from 40 cents to $2 per ton for another 20 million tons not burned by power plants. Bioregionalism at its finest.

What I don’t understand is the subsidies. The subsidies of energy, whether it be to oil, gas, wind, solar, biofuels, ethanol. The only energy source — which is the greatest source that we have so far as we’re dependent on — is coal. It doesn’t get a penny of subsidies. But it’s been villainized by this administration and so many people and it’s the one we depend on the most. It gives back more than it takes. I can’t figure it out.

We’re trying to use it in so many different forms, in super-critical heating, and things of this sort. We’re running into roadblocks with the EPA from every turn that we go. We’re trying to use it in conjunction with our natural gas productions, and trying to look at the changing the fleet to compressed natural gas, I think that’s very doable. Do you all have a comment on why that one source of energy which is the most dependent upon in this nation has no types of subsidies but the others demand so subsidies?

Credit for Production of Nonconventional Fuels ($14,097)- IRC Section 45K. This provision provides a tax credit for the production of certain fuels. Qualifying fuels include: oil from shale, tar sands; gas from geopressurized brine, Devonian shale, coal seams, tight formations, biomass, and coal-based synthetic fuels. This credit has historically primarily benefited coal producers.

this is such an informative article. I specially like this part 'It doesn't end with this list. There are huge subsidies, direct and indirect, for the coal industry in the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES), H.R. 2454, passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last year. It remains to be seen what will emerge after the Senate has its go at the bill, but the EPA's own analysis notes that there will be substantial subsidies for carbon-capture technology, up to $90 per ton for carbon dioxide that’s "captured" in the first ten years." i hope to see more....You truly impressed me.

After reading the article, I felt intrigued by this part of the article "Another troubling matter is that our obsessive quest for more and cleaner energy is blinding us to other important environmental issues. Ripping off the tops of mountains and choking streams up with the rubble to mine coal is every bit as noxious as emitting global-warming gases. So is building new power plants and power lines to feed electric cars, not to mention building thousands of miles of new roads for them" more power

Hello Mr.Green.
Coal has always been a great contributor why our ozone layer gets thinner and thinner. We owe a lot to coal for our electricity, and now, our environment is paying for that debt.

In my opinion the coal industry are not relevant. First, the heat is less in the second production costs are too high, and third, into the atmosphere huge kolichesvto harmful substances. But there is one caveat when the oil in the world over, people will be coal one of the few fuels.

I really appreciate your comment about electric cars not being totally benign. Auto manufacturers and the general public keep referring to the electric car as if it is free to drive which is simply not true.
