Seen on this thread that some people think solar and wind power are a joke. Germany is having a great experience with solar, and Scandinavian countries and Canada have been using wind power for almost a decade and surprise, Denmark has the smallest carbon footprint of all first world nations. We know coal is the ACTUAL joke, nuclear has PROVEN to be too dangerous, and gas has caused some of the bloodiest conflicts of recent years. The coal industry has to be heavily regulated because unfortunately, we can't trust large companies to do the right thing. You're gonna act like a child, you'll be treated like a child. Don't get suckered into feeling bad for an industry that time and time again has come up dirty.
