“It is well established that coal releases mecury which is a toxix nerve agent, into the atmosphere. Sulphur Dioxide does exactly make life easy for farmers either. Gas is cheap and it makes the most sense right now. Time for WV to move on.”
What is so silly is that the government is pushing electric cars... And shutting down plants. Idiots!
They have scrubbers that remove most of the mercury and the amounts that do go into the air fall to the ground in short order. Do you know how much mercury you come in contact from the ground every day?
Sulfer dioxide is a harmless chemical which has no effect except in scare tactics. Coal also makes extra CO2 which is good for plants. Don’t fall for the agenda driven science that wants to destroy America.
Pray for America
I grew up in Pittsburgh in the 40s and 50s when the steel mills and coke plants were running full blast 24 hours a day, trains with coal fired steam engines were belching smoke day and night, and most homes relied on coal fired furnaces in the winter. Not one of those mills, steam engines or furnaces had any form of pollution control.
Please show me where all the nerve damage from that 'toxic mercury' is. How did I ever survive and live to be an old man?
