Coal Mining Hurts Everything – it’s not just the air that suffers

Most people are aware that burning coal for energy isn’t a great look and are actively against it because, well, everyone likes breathing clean air. Clean air a major reason to move away from coal but if you weren’t convinced, turns out coal is pretty terrible across the board.

It doesn’t just ruin the air when it’s burned, the process of mining it is pretty awful for the surrounding earth. From toxic runoff into waterways to earthquakes, coal is just not a good look. A new study found that the common material was doing more damage then most people think.

Clean air is a great reason for coal to be discontinued as a resource. The fact that it’s pretty hazardous to the people who mine it isn’t great either (black lung isn’t a punchline, it’s a real disease) but it also ruins the planet in other ways. It’s time to break up with coal and start looking at and investing in other energy options.
