Burning coal is a leading source of global warming pollution and the dirtiest way we produce electricity. It’s super nasty when compared to wind and solar power. There are about 600 coal plants creating electricity in the U.S. and not one of them captures its global warming pollution – carbon dioxide (CO2).
And if dirty coal power wasn’t naughty enough, it’s also the largest single man-made source of toxic mercury pollution in the U.S. and also spews out tons of sulfer dioxide too.
There’s just no such thing as clean coal.
