Hey, I won't judge. To each his own.
I wasn’t suggesting you personally take responsibility, but your frustration, right as it is, is fuel for the hippie narrative that turns off conservatives and climate change skeptics. That’s why I harp on about switching to a more tangible narrative like green sector jobs. Concluding that thirst for coal is insatiable is incorrect. Coal industry is stagnant and green sector jobs are only growing. It is a failure of politics that climate change hasn’t been adopted by conservatives.Greenturtle wrote: ↑Wed Jun 06, 2018 7:33 pmI do not blame the miners one bit. I have friends who are miners.
The demand for coal is insatiable. If those guys didn’t mine it someone else would. I cannot personally offer anyone a different job. I am only one citizen.
My only goal in posting the above map is to increase awareness of yet another horrible consequence in the long list of detrimental impacts of fossil fuels.

But my point flew right over you head. A low risk IS a risk. And every fish carries a risk. How low of a risk would you consider dangerous for your unborn granddaughter/grandson? Should your daughter or daughter-in-law eat lots of fish out of the North Sea while pregnant? If so, at what odds (that LD thingy) would you reverse that decision.
A low risk IS a risk, isnt it?Name a food that does not potentially contain toxins.
Coal is only cheap if you do not place any value whatsoever on the environment. It pollutes huge in every category as I keep pointing out.marlboroughman wrote: ↑Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:17 pmI love cheap reliable and abundant energy that allows people to have good life. There is another book for you.
If this is too much for you to swallow try reading a book written in 1800's so you can get a sense of life without. Dostoevsky ie. if you like psychology. There is also a way for people who feel so strong about these issues. Go off the grid. People actually do it. Poverty is another thing you could try, and it should be easy enough project to accomplish.
