But with all of our new forms of energy, why do we need coal? What makes it a form of energy that we can't live without?
The world's energy needs are growing by the day, and we need every available form of energy to help combat this growing issue. Nothing can be overlooked, and nothing can be wasted.
That's why the World Coal Association, or WCA, is pushing for research into an international mechanism to help all countries, especially developing nations, deploy low emission coal technology to help satisfy their energy needs.
The Energy Industry is now working closely with the WCA to make this idea a reality, and there are many ways you can help to propel our coal use into the 21st century and to dispel widespread misinformation about one of the world's most effective forms of energy

The world has an energy problem, but coal is part of the solution. Don't allow antiquated misconceptions to be our downfall as our energy needs skyrocket into the future.
