peak coal

Peak coal is getting closer to us. In fact, we may already have attained this point according to two men of science. They are Tadeusz Patzek, a Univ of Texas engineering. As well as Greg Croft, a St. Mary's College of California earth science.

Dirty coal 1/4 of our earth's primary energy. It generates approx half of our electricity now. Yet, there is not as much coal as we would wish for due to most of it being low grade ore.
