Coal power is dirty - but abandoned mines could help create a clean energy future
Energy from coal is now being linked to global warming and pollution on a global level. In fact, it has been estimated that coal contributes to 25 per cent of green house gases.
Coal use has caused severe negative environmental impacts, from its mining and processing, to its transportation and combustion, leading to high levels of pollution. In October 2017, a United Nations weather agency report indicated that levels of carbon dioxide surged at “record-breaking speed” compared to 2016.
