Oh no it's the wind energy superheros here to stop us!
Stop right there you coal energy villains!
That's where you are wrong my friend
Let's go on a little adventure to explore the advantages and disadvantages of both our forms of energy production
We aren't even doing anything wrong, coal energy is just as good as wind energy. I'd even say it's better.
Okay well for starters coal is a non renewable source of energy. If we continuously use coal for all of our energy needs than eventually we will run out.
Yes, but once they are installed it only costs about 5 cents per kilowatt of energy
Okay maybe in the far future but right now in the present, production costs of coal energy aren't high. Where as wind turbines are very expensive to install, ranging from 1-4 billion depending on what kind of turbines
You're form of energy production isn't all sunshine and rainbows either. You're wind turbines effect the landscape, nature and even some animals. First, they require a lot of land to be cleared to install them which can destroy the habitat of many animals and wind turbines are also a big threat to flying creatures such as birds. The transportation and installation can also contribute to global warming.
Don't even get me started about global warming!
The effects of coal energy on the environment are HUGE!
Coal energy releases many things into the air such as sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and Mercury. These contribute to acid rain and smog. Not only do these things effect the environment but they can also effect human health
Not only can it damage their respiratory system and heart but it simply lowers life expectancy as well.
