Hey guys, I'm here to talk about a summary of the article The End of Coal.
The main idea of the text is about how coal is not healthy for Earth. It talks about the side effects of using coal, and how we might be able to use coal without a lot of pollution. The side effects of using coal is that it causes a lot of pollution.
The article also tells us how we can use coal without causing a lot of pollution. Obama’s plan is to reduce the amount of pollution each state uses. An example is North Dakota is supposed to reduce the percent of carbon by eleven percent.
Eventually, the article tells me that we are trying to figure out how to get clean coal. They are testing it out right now in Kemper County, Mississippi. If it succeeds, it will stop 65 percent of the carbon dioxide from going inside of the atmosphere. The technology works, but the Kemper power plant cost is a hefty five billion dollars.
